British robe à la française for court (sack gown) (Los Angeles County Museum of Art - Los Angeles, California USA)

From the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

The ruched trims, especially of the over-flounce, makes this dress interesting. The large engageantes date this to about the middle of the century.
