The big stylized patterns from the beginning of century tend to disappear for big spaces lefts without designs & they are finally replaced by stripes & small flowers. We also have a profusion of colours (avoid black except for mourning) even if with stripes during the 1770’s they used to like pale colours (NB: dark colours still can be found, but they are rare). Remember too that fabrics were often reused, a dress made in 1760 can be made with 40 year old fabrics.
