Sophie Hedwig is wearing a ruff that is laid flat in 1630s style. The ruff is continued by a collar and bertha. The underlying dress appears to be a saya with tabbed sleeves and it may also have a stomacher. Her frizzy coiffure is decorated with a jewel rope or bandeau and an unidentifiable ornament.
