Elizabeth Stuart wears a saya-type dress with a circular lace ruff in this 1623 portrait by van Miereveldt. Its 1623 and hanging sleeves are hanging on in Germany along with false sleeves. She does not appear to be wearing balloon sleeves, instead she wears long puffed sleeves like Ladies would wear until late in the century.
