Port Moresby, Pa...
My first The Monthly Stitch project for the August Cape Challenge.
I can’t believe I actually got it done in time, so cool!
The pattern is self-drafted, and I decided I didn’t want a peter pan collar, so I made this ruffled-effect one by gathering a long strip of fabric into a circle. The collar is sewn so that the reverse print is on the outside, whichever way you choose to wear it.
Fully reversible and tied with a ribbon.
When I flounced out in my finished project to show Himself, he burst out laughing, so this will be donated to somebody who wants it. I’m not sorry – while it’s very cute it’s really not my style. I feel the cold, so I’d want a full length cape (aka cloak) and would look ridiculous wearing that in the tropics! LOL
Such fun, I’m glad I did this.

No burn test to check, but I think they’re both cotton. The green is a medium-heavyweight and the print is sateen-y
