ca. 1575 Joanna of Austria (1547-1578) while Grand Duchess of Tuscany with grand ducal crown after Giovanni Bizzelli (Museo Storico della Caccia e del Territorio - Firenze Italy)

This copy of the Bizzelli portrait shows Joanna is wearing an over-dress with rolled sleeves with a short, not even cap, section while the under-dress provides her sleeves and the center part of her bodice. The two large pearls on her under-dress could be buttons.
