The narrow bell skirts of the seventeenth century have not yet arrived, but they are coming. The farthingale era is just about over in the UK, only the floating neckline ruff and the tabbed sleeves, and back-flared cuffs of her jacket bodice remain. A ridge runs down the center of the front of her bodice showing it is a jacket. Her hair falls over half way down her back.
