1960s Black Cape Dress

John Moore


Fantastic black wool cape dress by John Moore! This dress sits just above the knee, has a jewel neckline, and short sleeves. The loose shift silhouette of the dress is interrupted by a fine and precise pleat on the hip. The dress has a fabulous cape that drapes from the left shoulder over to the right arm. A classic!
