1950s Blue Cotton Velvet Evening Cape with Faux Fur Collar

Regular price £55.00

Cute little opera evening cape in a dusky cobalt blue cotton velvet with blue satin lining and a faux fur collar which is a later addition. If you examine all images you can see how it has been tacked onto the existing collar, so it could easily be removed if need be.

  • Dramatic vintage evening velvet opera cape with silky soft lining and blue velvet outer.
  • I have illustrated it accompanying a Medieval theatrical costume dress, which will be for sale on a seperate listing. ** Dress NOT included**
  • Fastening at the neck.
  • Fully lined with blue satin lining.
  • Pictured on a 36" bust very, very tall mannequin, so I would say it sits at the knee. Length is 38".
  • 17" across shoulders.

Condition

  • The cape in general is in fair to good wearable condition, the lining is remarkably good but there is a small thin and marked patch, see all images.
SIZING

Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing

CONDITION CHART

If they're likely to have attracted a moth then they go straight in the freezer for a few days to kill eggs, this is especially so with fur.

We describe these items to the best of our ability. We check each item carefully and will try to list any notable flaws. These are vintage items and wear consistent with age is normal and should be expected.

Items may be larger or smaller than my mannequin or model and may be clipped or pinned to show fit.
