Mid-19th-century pelerine fichus. Very delicate and pretty. These are from The Centraal Museum in the Netherlands.
The collar on the left dates between 1825-1875. It's made from embroidered cambric or batiste, a lightweight closely-woven white linen or cotton fabric.
And the embroidered tulle collar on the right dates between 1830-1835.

Cotton dress with gigot sleeves from America. It is displayed at The Met and dates 1832-1835. “Gigot” is a French word for “leg”. This style of sleeve is also called “leg ‘o’ mutton” or “leg of mutton” because of its resemblance to a mutton leg. And according to The Met, gowns like this were popular from the 1830s through 1836, when they began to diminish to the tightly fitted sleeves of the following period.

American tailored jacket from 1895. It is double-breasted with an oversized buttons and leg’o’mutton sleeves. This outfit is the Victorian equivalent of a sporting outfit, in this case, used for cycling.

Two cloaks fashioned from large shawls. Such garments were popular in the late Victorian period from until the 1920s.
The cloak on the left is from a private collection; it is a Chinese silk cape from the 1880s. The cape is made from embroidered cream silk, featuring a fitted back with a large knotted and tasseled medallion, and it's edged with knotted French silk.
On the right, is a similar hand-embroidered silk cloak from about 1890-1900. The cape is also bordered all around with hand-knotted silk fringe.

This is an 1880s silver dinner gown. And it is a great example of the silhouette from the Natural Form era.
