The straight or crescent neckline of the previous century is replaced by a scoop décolletage edged with a pink downward facing fringe, a bertha, that matching her cuffs. The bodice looks like it rests on the wheel with an expanded base like that of Lady Reynell. Rosettes of pink and black silk or satin add a note of color and three long rows of pearls add an opulent bodice ornament. Fashion had yet to abandon 1500s forms, but was experimenting with variations. The colors are more subdued than those of Elizabethan dress.
