Masquerade Cloaks

PRICE: $68 (originally $145-$165)

This is the Goldilocks cloak, not too long, not to short. They’re wonderful if you love the drama of a cloak but don’t want to drag your hemline through the mud in wet weather, or if you live in a wheelchair or require mobility assistance devices and find full-length cloaks too cumbersome!

The hoods are fully lined, while the body is unlined for multi-season wear.  Masquerade cloaks measure about 27 inches from the neck closure to hemline at centre front.  One size has never failed to fit anyone yet.

Colours and Fabrics

  • Teal velvet
  • Forest green velvet
  • Dark forest-green velvet
  • Dark red velvet
  • Chocolate-brown velvet (SOLD)
  • True red wool with trim (SOLD)
  • Silver crushed velvet
  • Black embossed velvet
  • Blue, silver, and black Jacobean print velvet (SOLD)

Care

Hand washing in cold water is recommended, but most lycra velvets and velours survive machine washing quite well in cold water on the delicate cycle (at your own risk!  Everyone’s laundry machines differ and some eat fabrics). Hems may curl under tension, or if you use heat to dry or wash, and need pressing to return to flat.

Opera Cloaks

PRICE: $95 (originally $195-$285)

You can’t beat the sheer dramatic impact of an opera-length cloak.

These have deep, generously-cut, lined hoods, and are designed with shaped shoulder seams, which are much better are staying put in place than circular cloaks.  The body of the cloak is unlined so you can wear it in all but the hottest weather.

One size has fitted everyone I’ve ever tried them on in 12 or so years, so you’re likely not the exception.  Lengths differ a bit between each cloak, but they’re about 50 inches (give or take a few) at the centre front, from the button-and-loop closure to the hemline.  They can be shortened if you really need it.

The velvets are mostly rich, flowing, high-quality lycra velvet, which is supremely comfortable and feel amazing.  A couple are lighter-weight crushed velour.  The other fabrics are specified in the photo.

Details like front band finish, closures, and hood lining may vary between items if I have more than one of that fabric.

Riding Hood Capelets

PRICE: $40 (originally $85-$115)

This is the everyday, super-versatile mini version of the cloak.

The deep, generous hoods are fully lined, but the body of the capelet is unlined, so it’s wearable in all but the hottest weather (great for sun protection with air circulation!).

These are mostly one-of-a-kind, and exact lengths can differ quite a bit between item — what you see is what you get.  Some are cut to be a bit longer in the back, while others have variable hemlines.  They may feel a little shorter than they look on my mannequin Amelia – she has a very short torso! 

The velvets may be lightweight or heavier, but they all have some stretch to them, except the red cotton-backed velvet, which is more substantial with a good deal of body.  Hems on stretch materials may curl if put under tension or heat (you can press them flat again). 

Details like the button closures and hood lining may vary between items if I have more than one of that fabric.  One size has fitted everyone I’ve ever tried them on.
