This gown and matching stomacher are made of very fine silk. Because of its shine or lustre, the fabric was called a lustring or lutestring. The process of 'lustrating' involved stretching and moistening the textile. In a 1756 treatise, silk designers are advised that ornaments for lustring ‘must be open and airy’ so as not to obscure the glazed ground. - Museum of London - ID no:57.106/8

This gown is listed as being from 1790 but I don't believe it.  I'm going to say 1780-85.  This is in the MFA in Boston.
