Romantic period cotton dress, circa 1830. Made from white cotton with inserts of embroidered net lace, dainty pleated bodice, and exaggerated gigot sleeves. They first appeared around 1830, making the waist appear smaller and emphasizing female curves. The emblematic full gigot sleeves have long narrow, ruched cuffs. The ruching is held in place with narrow bands of lace outlined with corded piping. The sleeves close with tiny thread-covered buttons.
