Description

Deep green ottoman silk cape that extends all the way down to the floor with a fitted design from the waist down and a very round shape from the waist up. Cape is held on by brown silk cords at the waist and at the neckline, which appear to go under a large puff collar. Sketch (in color) also includes a small view of the back of the coat revealing a center seam and indicates that the cape is to be worn over a brown ciré dress.
