I love that whoever made this cape chose not to leave it plain, but rather to embellish it with a turkey trot stitch in a coral pink color. It simply adds so much beauty to this very simple piece. I think the cape might be a very thin flannel and the lining could be silk. Around the bottom we have a very full 25 inch measurement. From neckline to hem, the cape measures 7 3/4 inches. The neck measures 4 inches around. I have it closed with just a safety pin, but a darling small pin would certainly enhance this piece. This is a wonderful piece for a smaller doll. I would conservatively date this to early 1900s. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a look at all Red Dog items and thanks for shopping my store.
