1797 Princess Elizabeth of the United Kingdom by William Beechey (Royal Collection)

From the lost gallery's photostream on flickr; spots removed from background with Photoshop by gogm.

Princess Elizabeth wears a Directoire-style dress, with some sort of bertha or ruff and puffed and slashed sleeves ending in back-flared lace cuffs with sawtooth edges - a 1797 van Dyck revival.
