This gown and matching stomacher are made of very fine silk. Because of its shine or lustre, the fabric was called a lustring or lutestring. The process of 'lustrating' involved stretching and moistening the textile. In a 1756 treatise, silk designers are advised that ornaments for lustring ‘must be open and airy’ so as not to obscure the glazed ground. - See more at: http://collections.museumoflondon.org.uk/Online/object.aspx?objectID=object-81301&start=19&rows=1#sthash.WVv24cXI.dpuf
