It was worn over a gown but could look like a gown itself, especially when floor length like this garment. The pelisse was made for a trousseau in 1823 for the wedding of the grandmother of the donor.

By the 1820s the high ‘Empire’ waistline is starting to drop towards the natural waist again. The ‘Vandyke’ style of the pointed shoulder pieces are one of the historical clothing references fashionable at the time.
