1862 (13 August) Lady Helen Laura McDonnell by Camille Silvy

Lady Helen's article in thepeerage is here.

From Paul Frecker; sepia tone removed (and re-added only to border) with Photoshop and the image size increased by half by gogm.

The skirt of Lady Laura's formal dress has eight visible layers, showing how designers responded to the acreage offered by crinolines. Her dress has a vee neckline framed with a layered treatment with lace bertha.
