Vintage Reversible Hooded Cape Red Blue Loomed Wool One Size


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a vintage reversible hooded cape that is made of red wool on one side and blue wool on the other side.  I believe that the wool was made on a jacquard loom - note the white weft.  This vintage reversible hooded cape has arm openings and a three button and cloth loop closure - one at the neck and the other two at the bust and waist respectively.  The wool is fairly thick, so this is more for cooler temperatures - although the cape is heavy, you don’t particularly feel the weight when wearing it.  Difficult to ascertain precise age, but I would think 1960s era.

Sizing: No size is indicated on this vintage reversible hooded cape, but this should fit a range of small to large sizes within reason.  Please rely on the following measurements for fit, taken from the exterior:

Shoulders:  22” across 

Neck:  38” around

Bust:  54” around, but this must accommodate the arms as well as the torso

Waist:  68” around, meant to fall loosely

Overall length: 46”, measured flat down the back from the neck seam to the hemline

Condition:  This vintage reversible hooded cape is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, holes, tears, odours or staining.

This is a wonderful quality vintage reversible hooded cape - the thick loomed wool fabric should provide good warmth!
