Leg 'O' Mutton

I was really intrigued by Lady Gaga's recent choice of clothing to meet the Queen. I love her modern reference to the Leg 'o' mutton sleeve. I am a big fan of the leg o' mutton sleeve as it adds just the right touch of drama to any ensemble. The sleeve was created in the 1890s and was named after exactly what it is called, Leg of Mutton which in those days is what they called Lambs. I recently gifted a Japanese couture jacket that had the most amazing Vivienne Westwood Style plaid along with a great Leg 'o' mutton sleeve. LOVE.
