Finally! My cape! I actually had it finished for a few weeks but i never got around to taking pictures. So yes, here it is. And I’m SO pleased with it! As always, I don’t have enough patience to make all the seams correct…But it doesn’t show;) I had a bit of trouble with the lining because I never have never sewn anything with a lining before. But all in all the pattern was easy to follow. The instructions were a bit harder but I used my brain so it all worked out! I made the tunnel for the belt but it looks better without it. I also think the sleeves could have been a little longer but I’ll survive and be smarter the next time. (I’m tall but I never consider it). I chose a pink lining for a little bit of accent.
