18th-century dress is renowned for its opulence. The skill of tailors and dressmakers had developed to such an extent that clothing styles were lavished with attention to detail and ornament. From the beginning to the middle of the century, women's clothing became larger and more laden with decoration. Wealthy women wore dresses made of brightly colored silk woven with bold floral and striped designs.
