Vintage 1950s Blue Boucle Wool Cape or Cloak with Hood
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful blue wool cape or cloak with attached hood. It is a very nice quality piece, seamstress made, but well constructed with attractive form and fall and beautiful blue wool in a bouclé finish. It is difficult to date this with certainty, but given the materials used, I would think that it is a 1950s era piece. The cloak closes with three hooks and eyes from the neckline down to the third of the four decorative blue plastic swirl buttons at the upper front. There is an arm opening at either side. It is lined in a light blue satin fabric. This should be a one size fits all piece - the neck measures about 20” around, about 19” across the shoulders, 52” around the bust (note that this must accommodate the arms as well) and the cloak has a length of 49” at the front. The cloak is in very good condition with no wear, tear, staining or odour - this has been very well cared for over the years.
This is a wonderful quality cape in a very attractive colour - sure to be noticed!
