Yellow silk dress. Closed robe dress with its sleeves pleated at the elbow. The bodice is lined in coarse linen and boned at the front on either side, opening with fastening eyelets concealed behind the robings. The flowers of the fabric's pattern are treated naturalistically, typical for this period. At the back of the dress is an end border with two green stripes across the silk.
1743 AD - 1750 AD
