1682 Princesse Marie-Thérèse de Bourbon-Condé, Mademoiselle de Bourbon, Conti

Most of the ingredients of turn-of-the-century dress, including a mantua, can be seen in this sketch of Princesse Marie-Thérèse de Bourbon-Condé. She was, very briefly, Queen of Poland. Her Wikipedia article is here.

The mantua is showing up as an item of formal dress, but the elbow length puffed sleeves remain.
