This cape it made entirely of vintage cotton gloves (including the collar, which is 2 gloves wrapped around at the neck) in many shades of off-white. Trimmed with gorgeous crochet lace (yours maybe a little different than pictured as each cape is unique, maybe from vintage and antique materials). Images shown are from the original, your cape, gloves, etc, will vary slightly. Ships in 3-4 weeks. I'm now making the collar of the cape like the black cape in the last photo, with 2 gloves wrapping around to make a high victorian neckline.

One Size fits most, Small-Large. I will need the measurement around your bust to complete the order.

Please wear and store with care. All materials are vintage and antique, so please be gentle.


Terms: (note: images are copyright Louise Black Designs 2000-2014 and may not be used for any purpose without permission).

International buyers: I do ship internationally and we offer international shipping rates via airmail first class. Because intl. first class is not insured (and we can not be held liable for lost or stolen packages), please inquire before placing your order if you would like your package insured. Insurance is usually an additional $12-15.00. Purchases subtotaling $200 or more must be sent Priority Mail with insurance, so if you're outside the States and this applies to you, I'll have to invoice you for the rest of the postage.

Most of you that regularly buy from out-of-country are familiar with the occasional customs fee, but there are still those to whom this is a surprise. Please know that this is always a possibility when ordering from outside your country. All packages will be marked as merchandise.
