1775--American: Round Gown - The round gown was a simple style, similar to a Robe a l'Anglaise, with the exception that the skirt and petticoat are as one - it is not an open robe. Popular in the 1770s through the end of the 18th century, the round gown featured a front-closing bodice with no stomacher, and a drop-front skirt.
