Lady from 1689 wears a close skirt that is almost conical, save for her bustle,
and an elaborate high coiffure. She
wears a jacket bodice with the front framed by lapels or lapel-like revers. The
sleeves are divided by ruffles into upper sleeves, middle sleeves, and
engageantes. She wears distinct over-skirt that forms a train.
