Description

I love that this cape is both classic and stylish.

I purchased this brown Pendelton wool almost 20 years ago waiting for the “right project.”
I only had 4 yards, so cut on the “hemline” to save an inch or two on each piece.

I also added shoulder pads to provide some much needed shaping.

My husband noted if I had used the lining fabric for the scarf also, it would have been “even better”. Of course this was after I had already completed the cape! Something to consider should I happen to make another version in the future!

    Nice cape! Glad to hear I’m not the only one that has fabric for even longer, waiting for just the right project!

    This is fabulous. I have made this as well. I’m just waiting on a good day to take photos. I like that the scarf’s the same colour as the coat. I feel using the lining as a scarf would limit the colours you can wear on the bottom if you know what i mean?? You can wear anything with the all over shade including patterned fabric . Fab x
