Gigot sleeve

The Gigot sleeve or the leg-of-mutton sleeve, was named for its resemblance to a sheep’s hind leg: wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. With a large puff of material at the shoulder, gigot sleeves tapered sharply at the elbow to fit closely along the lower arm.
This type of sleeve was popular in the 1830s and 1890s. The curvaceous shape was supported by special poufs or frame.
