This is an excellent example of dressing in public places, unfortunately un-dated. The over-skirt is draped in mantua style and the chemise contributes full virago under-sleeves. The bodice is adorned with vertical columns under flaring columns arising from the center. The fullness of the hair appears to be directed backwards.
