My latest obsession is the mighty cape. There is no easier way to pull separates together to create a polished look.
This cape was made using a Ana Sui faille from Mood Fabrics which is a fabric that gives this cape a more classic look. I also envision this fabric as a perfect midi or a beautiful floor length skirt because of it’s stiff drape.
I lined the cape with a charcoal charmeuse which I happen to love to use as a lining.
This cape was made with Vogue V1322 with the following alterations:
-Removed both placket pockets
-Added a welt pocket
