Princess Louise colorized photo

This colorized photo of Princess Louise has been posted many times on the Internet, both colorized and black and white. It is usually dated to 1901, but her dress says otherwise.

I can't date her dress precisely without the full length of the skirt, but the small cuirasse of her bodice combined with the possibility that the skirt swells at about knee-height says this dates to the mid 1870s.
