Mourning dress worn by Queen Victoria, 1894-95 UK, the Met Museum
Although custom only required full mourning for a year after the death of a loved one, Queen Victoria mourned her husband, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, for the fifty years between his death in 1861 and her own in 1901.
(Side note since I know some of you are wondering this) The waist of this dress is likely about 50” (127 cm) if the bloomers Queen Victoria wore around this time are any indication.
