Empress Marie Feodorovna figurine by George Stuart

The dress in this model is unusual because it has the over-skirt sides meeting in the middle instead of a downturned panel, cuirasse, or tablier. The use of paneling to form shape originated in 1866 according to fashionera.com, the "Princess" line shown here by Grand Princess Dagmar.
