While Élisabeth Charlotte's dress has the split bodice and notched sleeves of 1600s dress, her short curly coiffure and full skirt shows fashion is changing. Her dress appears to be fastened from hem to neckline with buttons or clasps and it also drapes from her back down to her skirt, a robe à la française.
