1633 Young Lady with a plumed headdress by ? (Manchester City Galleries - Manchester, Lancashire UK)

From oldrags.tumblr.com/page/2; flaws in background fixed with Photoshop by gogm.

This is about as close to a 1630s fashion plate as can be imagined. The sitter wears almost individually curled bangs under a dark flat cap, later replaced by sheer or matching-hued caps, a bandeau, and plumes. She wears mammoth balloon-like virago sleeves.
