only displayed one image on the index1.html page) and yeah,
the "Woman in Blue" and "Woman with Necklace" are sort of what I
have in mind -- only the sleeves should be full length, and fitted
(ie, curved to fit the elbow) and the neckhole fits up tight around
the neck, or rather, up tight around the ruff one would be wearing
Gosh, I wish I could find a copy of that picture on the web!
I did find some other German engravings that are closer to what I'm
after than the links you sent me:
(although this has "Queen" sleeves, which actually would fit over
the shoulder roll of an "indoors" bodice better than the fitted ones
Winter describes, and appears to have a hood? or the engraver has
exaggerated the collar a *lot*)
(this has fitted sleeves and shoulder rolls, and is a little shorter)
Hope this helps -- thanks for you assistance --
