1970s Fabulous Silver Sequin Butterfly Cape or Top
I adore this fabulous little cape that is crafted to look like a butterfly - it is one of those amazing little pieces you can only find with vintage. These were all the rage during the seventies and you now will find them in varying degrees of quality. This is one of the very well done ones, completely hand made and quite fabulous. The black silk chiffon base is entirely covered in glossy silver and black sequins mixed and edged with tube beads. The design on the front and back is of a butterfly and the shape of the capelet follows this design. It just slips over the head and adds an instant bit of glitz and glamour to anything. The open sides allow it to fit anyone and top anything. The camera does not quite pick up the impact of the silver sequins - it is better in person. Excellent condition.
The cape is fully lined in a black silk chiffon. It slips on to wear and will fit a variety of sizes. All the sequins are hand applied.
