RECESSIVE PIED SKYBLUE (LIGHT BLUE)

General body colour: irregular patches of white and deep skyblue with the latter mainly on the lower chest, rump and underparts
Mask: white, ornamented by up to six evenly spaced large round black throat spots, when present the two outer spots to be partially covered by the base of the cheek patches. The white of the mask extending over the frontal and crown, to merge with the black undulations at the back of the head. The frontal and crown should be clear and free from all markings.
Markings: on cheeks, back of head, neck and wings should be black undulations and/or black dots on a white ground, random in pattern and distribution and covering 10% to 20% of the total wing area.
Cere: fleshy pink in cocks, brown in hens.
Beak: orange coloured.
Eyes: dark without a light iris ring.
Cheek patches: violet, silvery white or a mixture of both.
Primary wing flights: white.
Primary tail feathers: white.
Feet and legs: fleshy pink.

It says here recessive pieds can be violet, silvery white, or a mixture of both

With as little markings as she has I would be shocked if she was not recessive pied, especially since you know atleast one parent is split to it and that the other could be

The one you mentioned was under the Yellowface category... not sure on that either lol

But any pied variety could have easily covered her throat spots and removed the color from her cheek patches, and with as little markings as she has she doesnt give much to go off of lol
