Luisa’s dress is subsumed into the artist’s conception, but she appears to be wearing a hat decorated with feathers and flowers. She has hiked up her skirt revealing the flounces of petticoats near her feather boa and her patterned stockings and shoes. The lack of a discrete waistline was common around 1910, but not 1906, so it may be the artist removed that detail from her dress. This is an example of the effect of an S-bend corset.
