Description

This cape has it’s own story. I started sewing it months ago. I had to stop for another project and start over again. It is made by a double faced wool, mostly hand sew to be double faced. I had to come up with my own method of sewing with this fabric and I believe I did well! I have a few tutorials on how I did it and I’m working on more.
Please visit my blog for details and lot of photos.

    Looooooooooooooooooove it! I can’t tell which side I prefer which is cool because it means lots of options. I’m inspired to create a menswear cape.

    Gorgeous! I prefer the grey side with the happy bits of red suprises peeking out. I’m not sure how likely I’d be to wear a cape, but yours makes me want one!

      Thanks! I prefer the grey side too, I like those buttons more too. I didn’t like them either, but it’s a unique style, if you like standing out!

      Thank you so much! You have lots of lovely pieces in your studio. I love your cape, I’m afraid I don’t have that issue though… Thanks again!
