Isabella Rich's dress is close to that worn by Frances Howard, but the waist area is covered by her wrap. The flat waist area created by wheel and French farthingales is an awkward match for a close skirt. This is an early appearance of the sophisticated lace that has contributed to fashion since then. Her jacket bodice is embroidered with a botanical theme.
