ca. 1685 Femme de Qualite en Robe de Chambre d’Hyver

This 1685 fashion plate shows a woman of quality at home. Fashion plates sped up the dissemination of fashion.

The sleeves aren't tight (think of the Vigee-Lebrun portrait of Marie Antoinette holding a rose), but they are less puffy then a few years earlier.

Keywords:  1685, high curly coiffure, veil, elbow length close sleeves, bows, over-skirt, lining, shoes, bracelets
