1960s Silver Sequin, Bead & Ribbon Cape

I adore this fabulous little cape - it is one of those amazing original and one of a kind pieces you can only find with vintage. The exterior base is a black knit that is entirely covered in rows of silver sequins, ribbons and beads, Little horizontal rows of ribbon are interspersed with beads to create that pretty effect. Between the rows it is heavily sequined and little half flowers are made out of the same ribbon and more bead work. The collar is entirely done in beads. The camera does not quite pic up the impact of the silver sequins - it is better in person! Excellent condition.

Shoulders: no defined seam but they are approx 14-15" across inside.
Total length: 22" from mid back of neck to bottom hem

The cape is fully lined in a black silky rayon. It closes down the front with a row of hidden hook and eye. The lining is hand set.

Modern Sizing Note: It is not the body on this piece but the shoulders - you do not want to be much past 15" flat across or it will not sit right
