She looks ready to go hunting. Her sleeves are tabbed and she wears a free-floating semicircular ruff above the partlet above her décolleté scoop neckline. Her sleeves expand as they descend towards the elbow to reveal underlying material through slashes. Leather gloves and a feathered hat round out her outfit.
