There are 2 frothy layers of embroidered tulle, with a top layer of handmade tape lace. It has long lappets at the front, that can be left open, or tied (I have shown it worn both ways). The layers of lace are attached to an inner silk collar - in really good condition with no signs of wear.
The shoulder cape is in excellent condition, with no damage, marks or stains. I have not laundered it, and it is currently ecru in colour if you have a Farrow & Ball paint chart, the colour most closely resembles No. If you decide to launder it, it would be wise to remove the silk before doing so. The lace would probably lighten if laundered.
The lappets are 87cms long and 36cms wide.
