Evening cape

About this object

Emily Tinne bought mainly hats and coats at Cripps’ but she also chose this stylish evening cape of fine silk georgette. The lightweight silk, decorated with applied ruffles of silk satin ribbon, allowed the sparkling glass beads of the dress beneath to be seen when the light fell upon it.
