Robe à l'anglaise: ca. 1780-1785, French (probaby), silk, embroidered cotton with silks, silk ribbon, lined with glazed linen, boned. "This gown demonstrates the fashionable styles in women’s formal dress of the 1780s. The hoop has changed from the square shape of earlier decades to a round profile. A stomacher is no longer needed, because the gown now meets in the front. The cream silk is adorned only at the edges with an embroidered band, ribbon and a stencilled fringe..."
