    These Regency garments were made from elder 18th century silks, probably grander Rococo dresses remodeled to fit the new and slimmer style.

    • Pink gown: 1800-1810, made of a silk brocade from the late 18th century. OK-dep-01040
    • Coat: 1800-1805, made of a Spitafield silk from 1746. OK-05678
    • Blue gown: 1820-25, made of a silk from the mid 18th century. OK-07407
