Round Gown ca. 1795; Met 1979.20a-g. Ensemble includes gown, separate stays, sleeveless spencer, and separate sleeves (probably left over from an earlier styling of the gown), all from the same striped silk satin fabric. The shape and length of the train and the hem facing are clearly seen in this flat view. A CF skirt seam splits the embroidery. The bodice has a CF opening with drawstrings at both neck and waist. Neckline drawstring extends to the small back piece.
Dress (Round Gown), ca. 1795, Italian, silk & linen - in the Metropolitan Museum of Art [Many great close-up photos of this dress, including inside lining of the bodice.]
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."
