I LOVE this. 1790s Robe a L'Anglaise. Cream silk taffetta, with a zone/turque-like front and button closure. Black lace decorates the front of the bodice and the cuffs, the latter lacing with wine-colored ribbons. The sash sports a metal buckle with a painted porcelain center, on a striped silk sash.

This looks to be a front closing day gown similar to the pattern I'm intending on using from Past Patterns.
