Redingote with leg-of-mutton sleeves, anonymous, c. 1825 - c. 1830

silk, l 128.0cm × w 64.0cm × w 71.0cm. More details

With the dropped shoulder and puffy leg-of-mutton sleeves, this redingote, or riding coat, is fully in keeping with fashion around 1825. To give the sleeves the desired volume, the fabric was cut on the bias. The waistline is already lower than that of earlier redingotes; by around 1835 it would once again move back down to the waist.
