1822 Varvara Yakovleva Albrecht by Charles Mitoire Benois (Rybinsk State History, Architecture and Art Museum-Preserve - Rybinsk, Yaroslavl Oblast Russia)

From Wikimedia.

Varvara's dress combines an Empire bodice with high waistline, bateau neckline, and short puffed sleeves with what appears to be an A-line skirt. The rouleaux (rolls) around the bottom of her skirt were common skirt adornments at that time although rouleaux rarely appear in these albums.
