Where did maxi dresses start?

Was this the first pattern catalog ever? The start of the tunic / maxi dress we know today, I would wear all three... except the bare breasted one.

79a/b - the modern day jumper, they just left the underblouse out of it (but haven't we seen that on the runway as well?)

80a/b - the predecessor of the modern day tunic.(Tory Burch, Lily Pulitzer to name a few)

81a/b - Look a shift dress!! Narrow at the shoulders, and wider at the hem, Do you think J Crew was an Egyptian?
