Countess Montchal is dressed in early 1700s style with notched
sleeves with Renaissance-like under-sleeves in this de Largillière
portrait. Her tabbed outer bodice, that matches her notched outer sleeves,
partially covers another layer that matches her sleeves that covers her
chemise, visible as a modesty piece and cuffs.
