Lindsey Cape redo

Added Jan 21, 2014

About a year and half ago I decided it was a great idea to make the lindsey cape. I had fabric at home already and it looked like a quick project. While the project was easy to sew, my bubble was burst when I got called Sherlock Holmes several times the first day I wore it to work….. well that was the only time I wore it since then and so I decided to add a belt and separate the arm holes. I really like the finished product and I think I will feel much more confident wearing it to work once the weather warms up!

    looks nice. Nothing wrong about being called sherlock holmes, though. He was bright! :)
