Historical Fashion ~ Women's Georgian

1700~1795.....During this century distiction was made between full dress worn at formal occasions and underdress for everyday clothes. Underdress included the robe a la francaise, or the sack-back gown and the less formal robe a l'anglaise or the closed bodied gown. Sleeves were bell or trumpeted shaped and became narrower as the century progressed. Dark, somber colors were preferred by older women, while light and bright colors were worn by younger women. Shoes had a high curved heel and backless mules were the most popular choice of shoe during the period.
