Get in touch with your’Spider Senses’, in this incredible Victorian capelet, with unique embroidery.. It is made from a lightweight wool weave fabric, and features an upper yoke, and main section. This handmade piece also features a set of wide silk ribbon ties at the neck, cotton netted lace trim with scallop edge, and a smaller passementerie style ribbon edging the upper and lower sections. The more-than-a-century aging of this piece has created a really beautiful variety of black hues, with some at the brown-black spectrum, and others at the purple-black spectrum. The original lining layer, unfortunately, was completely worn and shattered -which was what began the inspiration for a’creative repair’ embroidery. Utilizing a pure viscose thread, I’ve embroidered a spiderweb style pattern, along with moth and awaiting spider throughout the lower section. I also added a lightweight black acetate lining, to protect the damaged original lining -this lining is not shedding/shattered, and won’t be dropping any threads. This piece was also hand-washed, prior to repair and embroidery work all pieces in my shop are cleaned! The overall condition is good, with a few small thread-worn areas, as well as a few repairs, and the aforementioned embroidery’creative repair’, and added lining layer -please review photographs for full details. Sorry, no labels or maker’s marks present. Approximately 16.5 inches across from shoulder to shoulder. 14 inches length from shoulder to hem. Feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries!
