This rare and very beautiful antique cape is from the early 1900s! It must have some stories to tell and I wonder which special little girl must’ve have owned it, originally handmade by who, we don’t know! But it needs to be seen! It has been given the Little Pip touch with some additional vintage features including ruffled lace, a bow and doiley detail on the back.
It’s not perfect, it has signs of wear mainly to the crocheted edging which is visible upon close inspection but lost in the whimsical design and in my opinions doesn’t affect the wearability. By owning a piece of antique or vintage clothing you are inheriting it’s history and its signs of age, which I think make it all the more charming!
I am saying it is one size because it really depends on your child’s neck circumference and height as to how it will fit them. Here are some of the actual capes measurements that you should check against your child before purchasing:
Neck circumference 18cm
Centre back length from top of collar edge to hem: 46cm
HAND WASH ONLY
