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. This is a flat view of the dress with sleeveless spencer. It laces closed in the modern style (not spiral). Eyelets embroidered; original lace? Plain white/cream lining. Back neckline higher than gown. Sweat stains show it has been worn a great deal.

By the 1790s, the structure of clothing was undergoing dramatic change.  This afternoon dress in the form of a round gown steadfastly keeps up appearances and can pass for eighteenth-century opulence, especially in its colors and textile richness. ca 1790's

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. Closer detail of spencer back. Green stripes are very slightly narrower than purple stripes. Sweat stains at the center back are more extensive than those on the gown underneath it. Conclusion: It is likely that the spencer was worn over other gowns, not this one.
