Gown (reverse), 1780s, England, Indian Cotton. White cotton woven with pairs of very fine red silk stripes. Cotton is quite coarse and probably produced in India as English cotton from the same period was of better quality. The fabric is roughly embroidered with small floral sprigs, mostly in brown, green and yellow silks. Dress altered in the early 1790s. [Hat made by Philip Treacy, 2010. Metal wig made by Yasemen Hussein. Petticoat and fichu are reproductions.] Museum of London
