1570-1575 (between) Lady, thought to be Isabel Biddulph, née Gifford by George Gower (location ?)

Isabel’s bodice appears to have an over-bodice edged with revers that reach to her ruff-like collar. The sleeves' cuts are bound only near the tops. Her partlet and under-sleeves are made of the same material, suggesting they are parts of her chemise.
