1970s Turquoise Jersey Cape with Gold Cord Braiding Detailing & Hood

This cape with its bright turquoise color and all that gold cording is definitely a bold and over the top piece. Which is probably why I love it so much. In person the color is even better and has a touch more of a blue to it than how it photoed. It pops more against the gold. The cape itself is a synthetic jersey and this fabric choice makes it an easy to wear, travel with and care for. It is cut to drape over the shoulders and there is a row of four buttons at the neck. The shoulders have no seams and the cape falls from there in a swing of fabric that widens out as it nears the hem. There are two slits at the front that you can slip your arms through and each is decorated with swirls of the gold braiding. More of the gold detailing runs down the front and all the way around the hem. There is also a lovely pattern of it on either side at the bottom. This cape actually has a hood which makes it even more fantastical. It is also braided around its edge, down the center and a little gold tassel gives it the perfect finish. The back is cut to fall slightly longer then the front. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closed at the neck with fours embroidered buttons and loops. Its open cut should allow it to fit just about any body type.

Length: approx 47" from top of shoulder to front hem, 57" to the back hem
