Round Gown: ca. 1795, Italian, silk taffeta brocade decorated with embroidery and sequins, trimmed with fly fringe and tassels. "Around the 1789 French Revolution, the Rococo period's extravagant dresses of brilliant hues changed, becoming simple, white dresses. In this period, the "round gown" appeared, and at the beginning of the 19h century, during the transition to the wildly popular white muslin dress, is when high-waist, one-piece dresses, as shown here, were in vogue."
