In the 18th century, the United States was in the midst of its colonial period — a time that captured great diversity in fashion and clothing. Upper-class American women enjoyed importing beautiful fabrics from around the world, crafting elegant gowns with eye-catching detail. Though comfort was necessary as women worked in their homes, even the most average of colonial dresses was layered, lined, and frilled.
