From www.findagrave.com. Their image was slightly out-of-focus or otherwise blurred so I added sharpness and changed other settings to bring out available detail. However, the modesty piece and sleeves in the image as found have a pinkish cast.

Lady Hester's dress appears to have a vest-like center with sleeves of muslin-like material emerging from the sides. The buttons are concealed, it the bodice has any.
