Teagown, Templier et Rondeau, c. 1906
From 1900 women wore a less formal dress at home, also called a teagown. The model on display here is called a robe princesse and follows the curves of the body without a horizontal waist seam. The fine vertical tucks give shape to the bodice whereby the emphasis falls on the buttocks and bosom. The corset worn under the dress too underscored this line.
