Product Description

Hooded Cape, Cape, Mantle, Cardinal, Cloak are all names in use for a outerwear garment that usually is semi-circular and without sleeves, although there seem to be more variations than there are hard fast rules as to what makes a cape a cape, depending on the country and the century. This one is not semi-circular but a rectangle with curved edges.
Very little is known about this provenance of this garment. It is featured in DAR Museum’s exhibit “An Agreeable Tyrant”: Fashion After the Revolution.

Exterior Wool Fabric amount 2 1/3 yards. Lining 2 1/3 yards. Velvet 2/3.
