1900s (early) The Four Graces, Marchioness Victoria of Milford-Haven, Grand Duchess Elizaveta Fyodorovna of Russia, Princess Irene of Prussia and Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna

With the outside temperature in the upper 30s (Celsius), I am imagining this photo in summer conditions, but this looks like spring dress for temperature in the lower 20s.

Both images from the-last-tsar.tumblr.com/tagged/elizabeth+feodorovna/page/12; filled in shadows, using other tricks to bring out details did not work.

While this photo gives a general idea of how well-heeled Ladies dressed, many vital details, such as waistlines, are hidden. Marchioness Victoria’s dress has sleeves broken up by engageantes at mid-length and a flounced over-skirt, Ella appears appears (no guarantee) to be wearing a jacket with lapels over ?, Irene’s dress has up turned sleeves, and Alexandra wears the fanciest dress of all with a blouse under a scoop neckline as well as stripes and skirt decorations.
