An evening mantle or Sortie de Bal: roomy enough to fit over delicate formal gowns without crushing them, light in color to ensure visibility on streets without electrical lighting....

A Sortie de Bal was usually made from white wool or silk with light blue, pink, or gold yellow silk lining, or from pink wool or silk with pink or white silk lining.

This Sortie de Bal was made from a pattern published in 1860.  It is made from a silk taffeta striped with raw silk, generously trimmed with tassels.  It was inspired by an original made for an elegant doll.  It is closed with hook and eye and a silk bow.

While raw or lightly slubbed silk was not used for dresses, it does appear in outerwear, albeit very rarely.
