Scope note
Long garments for women, typically cut with flowing lines. Examples include semi-fitted women's dresses worn from the Middle Ages forward, and more formal dresses of modern times. Use "robes" for long, loose garments that tend to be one piece and open down the front, not necessarily women's fashion.
