1793-1797 Long cream dress with open front skirt panel showing white underskirt cotton (Bath Fashion Museum - Bath, Somerset UK)

From www.fashionmuseum.co.uk.

This specimen shows fashion in transition. The bodice is definitely from the previous era. The over-skirt is attached with a gathered seam that runs around the sides and back of the bodice, all of matching material. The skirt is not expanded by any kind of support.
