The black and white gown pictured mimics the most popular dress of the 18th century. Wide hips characterized the dress of the 18th century. The skirt resembles the pannier's that were worn under most in not all dresses worn by nobility. The long bodice of the pictured gown also represents the waist line of the 18th century.
