    American
    Silk
    Gift of Irene Lewisohn, 1937 (C.I.37.66a,b)

    The robe à l'anglaise was an open robe consisting of a bodice cut in one piece with an overskirt that was parted in front to reveal a matching petticoat. Its fitted bodice did not have the center back pleats, often referred to as the "Watteau back," that typified the equally popular style of the robe à la française.
