White muslin dress with long sleeves and shoulder ruffles. The muslin dress continued to be worn in the second decade of the 19th century. This dress shows how it has evolved from the earlier softer line into a simple highwaisted, narrow gown with long, close-fitting sleeves. The train had disapperaed by 1806 and shorter hems allowed for ease of movement.


1811 AD - 1815 AD
