1799-1805 ca. Gold Dress, European. Very high waist, small bodice and a train. Gorgeous hem decoration and a sparkled overlay makes it suitable for an evening outfit. Via Musee des Tissus et des Arts Decoratifs de Lyon.

This dress shows the transition from the round dresses of the late 1700s to the Empire style dresses with the waist line high under the bust. Small trains were still worn in the early 1800s, but much more manageable than the larger and more elaborate trains of the late 1700s.
