Victorian Fashion Plate Pictures

Tinted Fashion Drawings of Mantelets.

First Source - Le Moniteur De La Mode April 1850. 

In the early and mid Victorian eras a mantelet was more evenly balanced lengthwise than at other times. 

 The mantelet changed more to a half jacket with capacious sleeves and its contour changed with the fluctuations of sleeve styles and crinoline fullness so that it became a distinctive fashion garment in its own right, changing style lines as clothes worn beneath also changed the final silhouette. Mantelet can be spelt mantlet.

  Exquisite Paris Fashion Mantelets of 1852

When worn in the 1850s with a waistcoat as shown above, the mantelet made quite a fashionable statement.  Later the mantelet became longer in the front fanning well over the domed front sides of crinoline skirts.
