The ‘round gown’ style was favored by women in all levels of society, and was often seen in wardrobes of Quaker women. Simple lines and ease of construction – compared to some of the era’s elaborate outfits - must have appealed to these ladies, but another quality would also have been advantageous, and encouraged thrift of goods. Round gowns, had no need of a separate petticoat, and thus, an outfit could be made with less fabric than the more common dress-and-petticoat ensemble.
