1890s Maria Feodorovna's tweed autumn-winter traveling day dress

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by kmerov on 8 November 2009.

Maria Feodorovna's day dress shows the tailored look of the late 1800s with a distinct collar on the jacket and pleated skirt. The jacket follows the cuirasse bodice line of the second bustle period while the mildly puffed sleeves date this to around the late 1880s.
