It's a yoke made out of two triangular pieces, made to fit around your shoulders, and then a piece of fabric set with tiny pleats into the bottom edge of the yoke. I'll try to take some pictures of the capes that I have tonight and post them tomorrow so you can see what I mean, because it's kinda hard to describe. Also, I have several capes and might be willing to part with one if you are interested in buying...

Here is the link to my gallery - I have added a picture of the front and back of my nicest cape. The yoke is more triangular in the back than the front - there is a seam in the yoke down each shoulder line. Then the main body of the cape is sewn into the yoke with tons of little pleats.

If anyone is interested in buying a cape, I have two older-style ones that I can part with. By older-style I mean they have no patchwork, and have the smaller yokes that don't come down around the shoulders. The main fabric is the see-through stuff, and one cape is in black with a white satin yoke, the other is white with a red yoke. If anyone is interested, send me a PM with you email addy and I will send you pics. $30 each.

Also, I do still have catalogs available for Hopoya, a seminole crafter's co-op in Florida. They are the ones who did the yellow cape and a matching skirt for me. I have nice color catalogs showing the stuff they have for sale - jackets, vests, dresses, baby and kids clothes, household items, etc. Anyone interested can send me their mailing address in a PM and I will mail you a catalog.
