English court mantua, 1740-45 (with alterations in the 1920s) should do the trick. The mantua is of a ribbed silk with silver thread embroidery, couched and worked in satin stitch. Magdalene Giles was possibly the maker with Leconte the decorator. The display of wealth on expansive court gowns was proudly worn for all to see.

Interesting to see how the waistcoats were embroidered and pieced. Waistcoat front panels, c. 1760s, uncut. Elaborate metal thread embroidery and sequins on silk in sky blue.
