Princess Louise's dress in this 1878 photo closely hugs her body to the extent that she would be up-to-date with a vee-necked blouse. It would be interesting to see the part of her bodice concealed by her arms; she may be wearing a vest over a chemisette or the vest-chemisette may be parts of a cuirasse bodice.
