From circa 1790-1820 it was a light overcoat fastening across the bosom, in the 1820s developing into a variation of the pelisse-robe (commonest 1835-1860s). Close-fitting and fastened down the front to the hem, it appeared like a front-opening dress with lapels. The terms 'redingote' and 'pelisse dress' were loosely used for the same dress in the 1830s. In the 1840s the skirt was often en tablier (with trimmings descending down the front giving the appearance of a separate panel) and by 1848 the name had replaced pelisse-robe. By then the bodice and skirt could be separate garments.
