The Rust Antique Cape

The Rust Antique Cape, she is an absolutely unbelievable super rare rusty gold crushed velvet cape. She has a pink lining, button features at her collar and she closes with a hook and eye fastening at her neckline. She is an absolutely exquisite example of an antique cape, I'm not quite sure of her exact age, but I suspect she dates from the 20s\30s.

This girl is pretty much free size up to a UK 14/16.

 Length -  44"

For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

Rust Antique Cape is fresh and ready to wear, please have her dry cleaned only or spot clean if needed. She is in good vintage condition for age. 

This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.

Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements.  Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
