Crazy about Capes!

Hot trend alert!  Bridal capes are a contemporary and cool addition to the modern bride's choice of attire.­  We love the look and we'd like to recommend some of our exquisite fabrics for those of you thinking about a caped creation!

For an exquisite heavily beaded short cape we can imagine the lovely Brianna draping over the shoulders of a beautiful bride.  A delightful ivory Raschel lace, that measures 135cms/53" from edge to edge, this lace features intricate hand embelĀ­­lisĀ­­hment. Both edges feature the same scalloped and fringed borders to frame cape.

Staying with the beaded lace, we imagine a strong shoulder focused cape flowing down to the floor with pearl embel­lis­hment.­  Step in to the limelight ivory pearl beaded lace Cersei.­  With  commanding  attention, Cersei is a bold, modern arrangement of narrow vertical repeats adorned with pearls and beads measuring 132cm (52") across.­  There are a number of vertical bands, each with a modern design, most embellished with pearls or smaller pearls and beads.  The lace edge is a beautifully scalloped design incor­porating pearls and repeats every 18.5cm (7.­3").­  As the bands move up the lace they diminish or stop, creating a lighter, more open design for a flowing finish to the cape.  The ivory tulle base is exposed as it meets the identical opposite border of the lace. 

Lastly, we can imagine a light an ethereal romantically themed cape in a delicate Chantilly lace.  We would require a scalloped and fringed border, a soft and light handle and a delicate floral design all in ivory or white - a lace fabric to flatter has to be ivory Chantilly lace Francesca.­  Francesca is a very delicate Chantilly lace with floral bouquets, exhibiting subtle shading on the flowers. The double scalloped border is 12cms/5" deep and is identical on both edges. The border is fringed and has the bouquet continues to the edge. Francesca is a very feminine floaty fabric, also available in white , measuring 92cms/37" wide.

We hope these three beautiful laces will whet your appetite for a cape creation of your own.  If not then please browse our extensive lace collection of over 1000 laces.  Any question, please get in touch - we're happy to help!
