SUNNING, DIFFERENT , SO UNIQUE 1910s EVENING CAPE. Velvet, Lace and Tulle with and embroidered tulle collar and ends. PERFECT! Haven’t found anything similar online.
Sourced in Buenos Aires, Argentina from the Estate of an amazing lady ( I cannot reveal her name but they called her Mamita (mummy in Spanish)). I will be listing amazing nightgowns with the full “Mamita” embroidered. Last picture is actually Mamita, check how stylish she was! She lived between Buenos Aires and Paris and she sourced most of her clothes in Paris. There is a STUNNING cape of this era of the same estate (one of the last pictures) Please check it I am quite sure she wore it with this skirt.
Condition: I think the condition is great for its age. Totally wearable. Clean. It had some tears that where sewn. The largest one on the back (middle left) was covered with and antique lace very similar to the rest. There was no damage on the right but I still put the same lace of the left just to balance the design.
There were two more tears that where sewn on the back at the top. I tried to cover them too but I thought it looks better without covering. They are hardly noticeable because the are is covered by te tulle collar.
PLEASE CHECK THE STUNNING SKIRT IN ONE OF THE LAST PICTURES! IT IS LISTED SEPARATELY.
Measurements: garment lying flat. Measurements are in inches. (Las medidas están en pulgadas 1Pulgada=2.54cm).
Shoulder to shoulder: 19”
Total Lenght from Shoulder: 37
For your reference the mannequin is a women size Medium and it’s measurements are:
Bust: 88 cm / 34.64”
Waist: 66 cm / 25.98”
Hips: 90 cm / 35.43
PLEASE CHECK MEASUREMENTS BEFORE PURCHASE! Antique hand made items where handmade and differ to standard sizes. Please check the measurements closely for determining fit. I do not give sizes for vintage items as women's sizes are not standardized and a majority of these dresses were homemade or specialty made to fit one person. Also if vintage items are size tagged they usually run smalller comparing to the actual sizes. A good method to check is to measure a similar item that fits and compare.
If you have any questions about the fit feel free to ask, I am happy to help.
Please ZOOM carefully all pictures and Read carefilly description. There's NO RETURN on Pre 1950s and SALE pieces.
Please remember that Vintage Items have been previously worn and loved so a small flaw may go unnoticed.

Please Note :
Any accessories used in the picture are not included, there are there to show how the outfit could be worn or a decorative object. I need to be honest. I sell Vintage and Antique Clothing and I would say anything before 30s should be treated with care and worn with care. Mostly these items will be fragile especially 20s silk or Edwardian very fine Muslin. Some can not handle stress and will tear easily. Should be bought a size bigger where possible or should be a little loose on.
Things to consider when buying Edwardian or Victorian clothing:If an item is marked XS but looks loose and big! It maybe has a Medium Shoulder and Hip but the waist is Tiny! (Corsets!). It may look big and loose but the shoulders or opening of the arm will be small, or the waist.
- The sleeves may not be long to the wrist but more of a 3/4.
- Buttons also may vary in shape and size on the same blouse, these blouses are old and would have lost buttons along the way.
Happy to answer any question.
Thanks for visiting.
