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!
