One-piece dress with joined bodice and skirt, the latter not open in front to reveal a petticoat; late 18th-mid 19th century. Until circa 1806 a round gown was a dress without an over-gown; in the 19th century the meaning changed to a dress without a train. From the mid 1840s round dresses were often called robes.
