"In the 1770s a new style of wearing gowns was introduced, called a polonaise. Using buttons and loops, the skirt of the gown was draped up to create a swathed effect at the back. Also introduced during this decade were a range of striped fabrics, often in a complex arrangement of colours with both sharp and shaded edges, as seen in this example...This dress is shown with the skirt undraped, showing how the wearer had the choice of wearing the gown without the polonaise drapery."
