Posted to Webshots by ericab16; detail-enhanced by gogm. I also posted a version this image to Webshots without detail-enhancement, finding it on Mrs. Fujita's photostream on flickr.

Irene of Hesse's dress calls attention to her bust with a modesty piece-bertha and lace under-bands that meet the borders of a what may be a Swiss belt.
