I’ve seen many re-enactors say that if the laces are in the front, no biggie to dress yourself. When Mrs. Fitz was dressing Claire the laces were in the back, weren’t they? But most of the other times (including the wedding) the laces were in the front.

I’d imagine, when sleeping on the road, you would just loosen your laces for sleeping but not really get undressed. It’s not like they used nightgowns.
