From Miss Mertens' photostream on flickr; sepia tone removed by gogm.
Princess Alexandra wears a big feather wrap (boa? stole?) and a rather ornate day dress for this photo. Her sleeves suggest this photo dates to around when she wed in 1897. She may be wearing a jacket, but her bodice is more likely divided into a stomacher section and the rest framed by rever-like vertical panels.
