Vintiquedesigns is proud to offer this one-of-a-kind Mid-1800's fancy Mantle and matching Bonnet, with a "demi-Bonnet" style open back! The pattern for the Mantle is another antique doll pattern, which I've revised to fit American Girl.

This is one of the styles of outerwear that would have been worn in the 1850's, even in New Orleans. It features an "open arm", Pagoda sleeve style, and a deep slit in the back to accomodate the very full dresses & petticoats worn at the time. This lovely set would have been worn on any occasion requiring dressy or elegant clothes!

The fabric we've used is a luscious Brown Tafetta, lightly flocked with a deeper Brown. We've accented with Black - tiny, looped fringe, small Black soutache braid inside and out, Jet Black carved buttons and tiny Black tassels. Detail-wise, these are the exact accents used on the original pattern! (We're just lucky to have found them in the appropriate scale!).
The Mantle has an underarm elastic -rather than a sleeve opening- to keep the piece close to the body, and closes in the front with two a small Black frog. The lining is a luscious chocolate Brown Taffeta, and it, too is trimmed with the Black Soutache braid.

The matching Bonnet features the Tafetta lining on a straw frame. The top features a row of Brown Taffeta, a row of Black pleated trim with a velvet ribbon, and a row of an unusual Black rayon vine & leaves, a vintage piece! Elegant Black feathers and a sheer cotton ribbon complete the top. The inside of the Bonnet has a covered brim (Brown Taffeta), and a Black cotton crochet ruffle, along with a row of Black pleated Rayon trim to frame the dolls face.

The Black dress, our doll and her boots are NOT included in listing; Mantle & Bonnet ONLY. Will require a box for shipping.
