back in black-"ModCloth Handmade Contest"

New York, New Yo...






this teeny capelet is destined for a mystery person! which may be YOU… visit my blog for the giveaway!

meant to be paired with this modcloth dress (i am so into their dresses): be the buyer sample 573 and yay, this dress is coming to the store soon!!! back when i started it was still in limbo, i think it’s such a sweet dress.

the closure is a vintage jewelry clasp that i re-beaded. lots and lots of ruffles and pleats make this cape keep its shape. i imagine it would give a completely different look to this dress, like a costume change for act 2 of the party…

Material Notes

lace, vintage jewelry clasp, thread, elastic




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
