1826 P. I. Sapoznikova by Vladimir Troponin (State Hermitage Museum - St. Petersburg Russia)

From the Unofficial Hermitage Web site.

Skirts and shoulders have yet to swell to pre-Victorian expanses although her shoulders are under epaulettes. This dress retains some Napoléonic features, such as the neckline, a modestly-wide waist band, and a close, probably A-line, skirt.
