Gisela of Austria wearing an austere dress by J. Albert

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forums by Yseult on 14 September 2008.

Gisela here wears a buttoned bodice made of plain material, characteristic of the 1880s and later, without collar or lapels over a chemisette. The sleeves are without puffing, narrowing the date to the 1880s.
