The gigot sleeve, also called the leg o'mutton sleeve, was named for its resemblance to a sheep's hind leg: wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. This dramatic style of sleeve was first seen on women's dresses in the sixteenth century but became a very popular style during the late 1820s and early 1830s, a romantic period that favored flamboyant styles.
The gigot sleeve came into style again during the 1890s as part of the fashionable hourglass figure, for which women were supposed to be wide at the shoulders and bust, narrow at the waist, and wide at the hips.
