Christine's dress is typical, but the lace of her ruff marks an early appearance of sophisticated lace making techniques instead of reticella. The lace has complex patterns set against a filled ground. She appears to be wearing a fichu over a partlet. Her bodice and stomacher appear to have a square neckline.
