This outfit was inspired by a blog posted by the Selfish Seamstress.
I loved the idea of a cape dress whereby the cape is attached using the buttons on the dress. As I already have a cape pattern, I didn’t want to buy another. Instead, I used a dress pattern from burdastyle and a vintage cape pattern, made modifications for both to recreate the look.
