This half-cloak, or "capelet," is a simple but elegant cloak made from a NAVY BLUE velvet material (fairly lightweight) and then entirely lined in NAVY BLUE satin. Perfect for regency, Victorian, or Civil War eras. Appropriate for the time period, it is cut in a circular pattern. It has a short circular collar and closes just beneath that at the throat with a two-button clasp, gold in color, and loop. Currently we carry this caplet in ten different colors, but if you need one we do not have, please tell us, since we are always looking for new items and color combinations to add to Artemisia's current offerings.
