Chintz Round Gown, 1775-1790, Glazed printed cotton - which was popular and would have been available for purchase once the Revolutionary War ended and fabric was once again being imported from Britain. Round gowns became popular during the last quarter of the 18th century. Most gowns in the 18th century had the skirts split down the front, allowing the petticoat to show. Round gowns did not have a split down the front.

This dress is made of white cotton woven with pairs of very fine red silk stripes. The cotton is quite coarse and probably would have been produced in India as English cotton from the same period was of better quality. The fabric is roughly embroidered with small floral sprigs, mostly in brown, green and yellow silks. 1780 - 1790 Museum of London
