Her hair is worn parted in the centre with ringlets at the side of the head, with a bonnet tied with ribbons. She is wearing a mourning dress with a large crinoline skirt that is decorated with vertical pleated ruffles on the skirt, sleeves and cuffs with undersleeves. She is also wearing a long, thin chain around her neck.
