I wanted to try it for long time … now I did it: my first cape. I chose a pattern form the Burdastyle Easyfashion Magazin autumn/winter 2011 because I like the hood so much. Also the pattern includes a nice detail with the armholes and godets behind the zippers in the front.
I used a darkblue woolen fabric for coats and added a blue plaid cotton for the lining (a leftover of my vintagedress ).
I’m happy with the result and the look reminds my of a classy and a bit british way to style. I can also wear my selfknitted gauntlets to keep my arms warm.
