A figure wearing a woman's dress adjusts it with help of one man while three other men look on. Depicts the explanation made-up by Julia (disguised as Sebastian) for knowing that Julia is "about my stature": "at Pentecost, / When all our pageants of delight were played, / Our youth got me to play the woman's part, / And I was trimmed in Madam Julia's gown" (4.4.167-170).
