Two types of fly fringe (braid) adorn this sack-back gown of about 1770, one as a trim, the other as a tassel. White silk knotted into a twisted cord, with tufts of green and pink silk comprises the fringe edging the ruffles of the sleeve and front appliqué. The gown is further embellished with long tassels of loosely knotted coloured silks. The tassels bear coils of coloured silks, which imitate the shape and colour of small posies.
