    Ball gown c1842 | Medium: silk, cotton | Length at CB: 51 in. (129.5 cm) | The Metropolitan Museum | Accession Number: 2009.300.1007 | This is a striking example of how 18th-century fabric was treasured. The textile was probably originally a 1740s dress which was taken apart and then reconfigured into this fashionable dress in the early 1840s. The elongated waist and V-shaped bodice front emphasize the bust and wide shoulders and were key features of the dresses of the period.
