Description

This cape is based on burdastyle cape pattern 08/2012 size 36, but I decided to make it a little bit shorter than the original pattern. I used 2.5 yards of brushed wool in orange color, 2 yards of polka dot silk sateen for lining, 7 buttons and almost same color of thread. All the materials are from my stash.
I love how this cape turned out and I am having a fun wearing it :)

    Oh wow!!! This cape is just fabulous. It looks terrific on you. I love the colour and the lining. The inside is every bit as pretty as the outside. Awesome work x
