Vintage Cape Find


I was thrilled to find this vintage thick wool cape yesterday at the North Melbourne Market.
It's a Wetherall Sportsclothes of Bond St.

The lovely girl who I bought it from told me it used to be full length, but she cut to make it shorter as it was too bulky for her.



It's still great but I would have loved it full length.

In my last year at high school I made a cape with matching skirt like this.
It was an ochre colour. I lined it and it had self colored buttons.
Thanks for he happy memories this lovely cape brought back.
Hope you enjoy your new find.
Hope your little one is doing well.
