Sequin & Lace Victorian Cape

A stunning example of the meticulous craftsmanship that clothes-making once entailed. This beautiful piece is a marvel of design and intricate workmanship. On overlay of netting has applied sequins around the entire cape. This is over a jet black silk base. Layers of tattered lace and embroidered edged netting create a dramatic ruffle at the hem! This same lace sweeps up the front! A big lightly boned stand-up velvet collar frames the face and it is embellished with a dotted silk tulle and the most amazing wide panel of heavily applied round paillettes. These same paillettes adorn the velvet ties at the bottom front of the cape. The hours to sew each of these on must have been astonishing! It's not perfect, but still extremely wearable and quite fabulous in that tattered, romantic shabby chic kind of way!
