The trend for bridal capes has been in evidence for some time and hardly seems to be abating as more and more brides discover just how much the capes can add to the beauty of a bridal gown. Bringing a touch of chic elegance, a bridal cape can completely transform the look of your wedding outfit and can be made using a variety of different styles of wedding dress lace.
In this edition of the Bridal Fabrics blog, we showcase two very different but equally fabulous styles of cape fabric, both of which are immediately available from our online fabric shop.
Vedette: Ivory Embroidered Lace
The name 'Vedette' is of French origin and means 'star' in the sense of 'celebrity': this makes it the perfect name for this gorgeous wedding lace as every bride wants to feel like a superstar on her special day. An ethereal bridal lace, Vedette features a galaxy of embroidered stars which, in a variety of sizes, emblazon the sumptuous lace fabric.
Each star that decorates Vedette Ivory lace has been subtly embellished with glittering translucent sequins, making it one of our most magical dress fabrics online. Simple and delicate yet extremely elegant, Vedette wedding fabric is flexible and versatile, making it a perfect style for creating uniquely-beautiful bridal capes.
Majestic: Polyester Satin
Among our myriad options of wedding fabric, we stock a number of polyester satins. Majestic is the most popular of these online fabrics for several reasons. The fabric has superior draping qualities and boasts a luxuriously-rich matt finish that lends itself well to both structured and flowing designs.
With its smooth and sensuous silky handle, Majestic is especially resilient to creasing and so is perfect for creating bridal capes. It can also be used to craft unique ties, cravats and bridesmaid dresses. It is also available in any of a comprehensive range of more than 50 colours, including Porcelain, Pink, Ivory, Blush, Silver, Oyster, Lemon, Gold, Coffee, Spearmint, Raspberry, Turquoise, Tangerine, Fuchsia, Copper, Purple, Scarlet, Jade, Black, Chocolate: please feel free to order a sample or one of our shade cards.
