    Wow, looking good! I made the 112 version – shorter without the gigantic pockets. I’m pleased with it except I think the position of the armholes is a bit to low for me: if the were higher I could get my hands out to the elbows rather than just the wrists. And I made mine in navy wool boucle, which is nice but on the whole looks a bit dull (the buttons are hidden on my version). I need a brooch or something to look more interesting. If I was to make another one, I’d go for pretty buttons like yours!

    Those happen to be the buttons I put on the very first jacket I sewed! This cape is gorgeous— your sister is so lucky.
