It is interesting to see a complete middle 1600s dress appear in a portrait. The brown gauzy bertha is prominent in Beaubrun Brothers portraits, but it is not so prominent when looking at an entire dress. She may be wearing a cape or shoulder train, but adding lightness does not bring out details in this image.
