Lady Margaret Kennedy (1800-1889) by Orazio de Manara (Hardwick Hall - Doe Lea, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, UK)

I put this portrait of a woman wearing a generic formal dress here based only on an estimate of her age. A biographical sketch of her is here.

From bbc.co; I increased exposure and filled in shadows to get some idea about her dress. It looks like it has a pleated bodice.
