Ballgown, 1780-85 France, Musée des Tissus de Lyon    This dress, also called “robe parée”, is a ball dress.

The decoration consists of appliqué painted flowers, gauze flounces and extremely refined embroideries. It exemplifies the dresses Rose Bertin, Marie-Antoinette’s dressmaker, used to create for the queen.
