    Moiré silk tea gown with cotton lace trim (back), probably American, 1875-80. The teagown was intended to be worn at home while greeting receiving people. It did not require the wearer to don a corset underneath. This level of comfort was only permissible in one's own home. An interesting construction aspect of this teagown is the back, which resembles a redingote and adds a masculine touch to a highly feminine garment.
