In this period, the waist is higher, the sleeves less tightly fitting (frequently open and fastened at intervals with bows or rosettes), and the skirt round in form and open down the centre front. Here, the bodice, similar in shape to the previous fashion, is buttoned through at the centre front. Epaulettes emphasise narrow sloping shoulders. The standing ruff and supportasse are fastened to a neckband. The sleeve is composed of an inner sleeve, an open sleeve and a hanging sleeve that reaches the ground. The open sleeve terminates above the wrist in near elbow-length double or treble cuffs. Open, pleated, skirts clear the ground.
