Dolman coat with lace, anonymous, c. 1880 - c. 1885

l 90.0cm. More details

The key feature of a dolman is the way the sleeves are cut thus creating a shape halfway between a coat and a cape. It was a popular garment in the 1870s and 1880s. The front was usually longer than the back, where protruding panels accommodated the bustle.
