In the mid 19th century, a properly dressed lady did not leave the house without a shawl, mantle or other similar outerwear. In the spring and fall these mantles were often made from solid silk taffeta.

The mantle is constructed according to the original pattern instructions from an 1860 full sized pattern. It is very full with yards and yards of flounces and will drape gracefully over even the largest skirt. The mantle is shaped so that it lays gracefully over the arms.

Suitable for Civil War Era reenactments and living history.
