Lady Margaret's dress looks back to the Elizabethan age, but the waistline would persist into the new era. The lace is old-school reticella, but the ruff is limited to the back of her neckline, where it sprouts from beneath a bertha. Advanced lacemaking was on its way to finish forcing ruffs ruffs into becoming collars.
