This is an example of 1780s fashion being brought forward into the 1790s. The long bouffant coiffure adorned with a head band, the long close sleeves, and full skirt would all fit a decade earlier. She appears to be wearing a criss-crossed fichu over a chemise that completely fills in the neckline area and adds a ruff and a silk jabot. Her dress is predominantly tan, but it has a prominent maroon waist band.
