A dramatic capelet inspired by late 19th century mourning wear: a base of cotton bobbinet tulle and herringbone coutil is overlayed by intricately symmetrically cut French leavers lace. The delicate scallop edge of the lace trims the bottom hem. Synthetic baleen boning gives the cape structure at the seams and a row of satin hook and eye tape forms the centre closure.
Each garment is strictly made to order for the customer, and is available in the standard 'Anthracite' colourway (dark grey and gold lace with black trims). Custom sizes are available upon request and may incur an additional charge. Please allow 8-12 weeks for your garment to be completed. Rush orders may be possible dependent on the time frame, as the lace for this design is ordered specially for each individual customer. Custom capelets in the 'Pearl' colourway are possible with a different centre front fastening option (including buttons/loops or eyelets/lacing). Please contact us to discuss the different options.
One size fits most. Minor adjustments can be made to the cape according to the customer's measurements: please provide the circumference of your neck and shoulders at check out.
