1617 Elizabeth Honeywood age 23 years by circle of  William Larkin (auctioned by Sotheby's) From

Elizabeth Hon(e)ywood's dress has three different fabrics. The farthingale era was running its course so women wore crazy-quilts of different materials. The right side of her surcote has pearls and the left side may have eyelets to button the pearls in to. The way her bodice overlays her skirt was used frequently in middle 1870s cuirasse bodices. Her bodice may also have a row of pearl buttons running up the center.
