The left seated Lady wears a sacque back dress, the seated Lady in orange may also wear a sacque back. The right seated Lady is not wearing a sacque back. Several wear fichus that convert square necklines to vee necklines, possibly a concession to the outdoors. The center Lady wears a darl wrap, possibly with lace. Coiffures appear to be short and straight and I cannot resolve pig tails. Some Ladies are wearing small plain caps.
