Round Gown ca. 1795; Met 1979.20a-g. Ensemble includes gown, separate stays, sleeveless spencer, and separate sleeves (probably left over from an earlier styling of the gown), all from the same striped silk satin fabric. Here is a closer detail of the fabric and embroidery on the hem. The embroidery mimics fine lace. Also visible are the tiny stitches securing the hem facing.
