Here is a detailed, absolutely real and corrected from the Schenk (Schenk made a plenty of mistakes) by Kuznetsov (according to the official Imperial Russian Military laws) uniform's illustrations of Olga Nicholaevna, Tatiana Nicholaevna and Maria Nicholaevna Regiments. I decided to post all of them here on Olga's thread, in order not to "clutter up" all the threads. Maybe it will be helpful for those who colorize pictures with their uniform, make paintings with them and so on, in order to make the works at least more close to reality.

Anastasia Nicholaevna's 148th Caspian Infantry Regiment, as a hundreds of typical Infantry Regiments, has the familiar colours and design to all non-guards Russian Infantry. You can find a plenty of different Infantry Regiments pics in internet. But anyway, here is an example of similar by design (only with Alexander III sign on epaulets), of 145th Novocherkassk Infantry Regiment.

1. 3rd Hussar's Elizavetgrad of HIM GD Olga Nicholaevna Regiment.


2. 8th Ulhan's Voznesensk of HIM GD Tatiana Nicholaevna Regiment.


3. 9th Dragoon's Kazan of HIM GD Maria Nicholaevna Regiment.


4. 145th Novocherkassk Infantry Regiment (design similar to original Anastasia Regiment).



*Taken from the helpful Kuznetsov tables. Thanks to author and his great work in absentia;).

Terrific post, Nicola. Would you please also cut and paste that information into this thread: OTMA's regiments. It would be an excellent reference there as well.

The photograph depicting a rear view of the uniforms was printed reversed.  Tatiana's pouch belt ought to be over the left shoulder and the plume on her czapska (Uhlan cap) ought to be on the left.  The busby bag of Olga's busby ought to hang from the right side as correctly illustrated by other photographs.  The caps shown in the color photograph of the uniforms are undress caps worn when not in full dress uniform (e.g. without the busby or pelisse).  There is a painting by a famous French military artist, Edouard Detaille, depicting Nicholas II at the head of the Life Guard Hussar Regiment while on maneuvers wearing the regimental full dress scarlet uniform with the peaked forage (undress) cap.  The enlisted men are wearing the peakless EM's forage cap.

Coldstream, Thank you for your post ! Reversed photos are a pet peeve of mine. Military uniform are a great help in knowing whether a photo is reversed or not....when one knows how they should look , as plainly, you do.

Well, we don't know!
Holly thinks that when Nastya get her regiment it was occuring the first world war (1914-1918), so her father didn't get any pics of her and her uniform!
EDIT: But maybe there's one picture. Who knows!!

How amazing! I wish I could have seen Olga in this wonderful uniform. It would fit perfectly to her face.

True! The way they have positioned it though, is better than usual. One can see Olga in this somewhat. The stance is similar. But I just can't imagine seeing her dressed in this  amazing uniform with all her decorations, her gold hair and blue eyes  in the sunshine...it must of been dazzling . The peaked cap was part of her kit...but I've never seen a photo of her wearing it...only the dress hat ...which looks like bear skin
