1582-1585 Infanta Catalina by Alonso Sánchez Coello (State Hermitage Museum - St. Petersburg Russia)

She appears to be wearing a cape or jacket of maroon velvet adorned with gold thread, probably associated with hanging sleeves based on the material extending to the bottom at the right side of the image. False sleeves appear to emerge from the cape at lower right-center. She wears a floral- or, probably, jeweled-headdress.
