The components of Elisabeth Albertine's dress can be identified including the bodice that ends in a vee seated between the over-skirt-bustle and the under-skirt. The bodice has revers framing a stomacher. The over-skirt appears to be attached with a waist band. Creasing created by gathering over-skirt material to the waist band is visible. The bottom of her hem shows beneath the raised hem of her skirt. Fontanges era prints show gloves were a must accessory.
