More information on the original portrait can be found at the National Gallery.
There's also this hat:
which to me looks like a mini version of one of these:
They both like a variation on a knit and fulled beret, or possibly a brimless wool flat cap like you see later on. Of course the top lady is English and the bottom one is German, and a few decades apart, but the basic shape looks pretty similar.
Here's another portrait with a fabulous hairdo and headpiece I sort of love and may have to copy and thus work a whole outfit around as well (maybe the same outfit). This one should be much cooler (duh) than the one above, and gives me a good reason to not cut off my hair. I am sort of wondering if it's a beaded piece or a metal band though. Beading would be far easier for me to do, as I already know how to do that.
