    Robe retroussée dans les poches at the Kyoto Costume Institute.

In accordance with the English custom of walks in the countryside and  relaxing in the open air, it became popular to dress up in clothes  derived from the work clothes and townwear of ordinary people, who, by  their nature, put great importance on freedom of movement. One of these  so inspired style is the “retroussée dans les poches”, as seen here. The  gown’s hem is pulled out from slits in either side, and draped on the  back. The red and white contrasting pekin stripes also heighten the  folds’ effect.
"Pekin" stripes are textiles originally made in China of equal-width  striped patterns of differing colors and weaving methods. Along with the  expansion of interest in chinoiserie, around 1760, Peking striped  fabric was even produced in France and became popular. As Jean-Baptiste  Siméon Chardin (1699–1779) painted ("The Morning Toilette", c.1741,  National museum, Stockholm) , women of the rich bourgeoisie often wore  this kind of striped pattern.
