A popular colonial fashion, this classic round gown is expertly recreated for you to wear and enjoy. Mostly worn by middle class women for casual dress or by servants and the lower classes, this gown is a simple design with the skirt and petticoat as one, featuring a front closing bodice and a drop-front skirt. The gown is worn by stepping into the gown and tying the front waist tie closures towards the back of the waist. The bodice is then put on like a blouse and fastened using the hook-eye closure.

Though ready-made clothing was not typically sold in merchants' stores in the 18th century, milliners and tailors regularly advertised in the Virginia Gazette that they sold "ladies cloaks," "Flowered and striped aprons," "stockings," and "ready- made shirts" in their stores.
