Not just any vintage Welsh wool cape, this is a deadstock welsh wool cape that DETATCHES from the waistcoat! From the 1960s, this forest green beauty boasts its original Welsh wool swing tag, something you don't see everyday. The waistcoat is designed to be worn fitted to keep you nice and warm, but could be layered over knits, dresses, and other jackets, with the cape being attached under the collar, allowing for extra warmth and drama! And of course for those Call the Midwife fans, a great way to add something seen in the show to the wardrobe!

We advise paying close attention to the actual measurements of the garment. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
