Camel colored cape with a surprise coral lining.

10/2011 Cape finally complete. This was the first time I ever made a garment following a pattern.

While I may be a newbie to the pattern world, I have a background in technical design and I found the pattern to be quite troublesome (like many of the others who have attempted the pattern).

The hood is badly drafted, its really over sized and really took away for the otherwise tailored aesthetic of the cape. I redrafted my own version of the hood the end. The pattern instructions didn’t have lining, so I winged it and made up my own interruption of it anyway.

Other then that I have to say I am totally in love with the cape. The amount of compliments I get about this is incredible.

Material Notes

2m of a cashmere woolen weave and 2m of silk crepe for the lining.
