I think this brocade is in the ballpark for very high upper class Tudor. A quick internet survey leads me to believe that 5% to 10% of female Tudor portraits show brocade overgowns. Most tend to be a bit less high contrast than yours, but some are close. The pattern of your brocade reads as mostly Tudor with a very slight Baroque slant due to the ornately feathery acanthus foliage. The central motif of a lotus blossom may be slightly exotic in a Tudor context, but most people won't notice that.
