    BurdaStyle, your recent series of wardrobe basics are WONDERFUL. I covet them all. We are coming up to summer here but this cape would be perfect for cool nights.

    I am currently working on a cape, this might help me with mine :)!! really cute. To keep the cape flowy you used silk as the lining, correct? could you use anything else to line it that would still let is lay right?

    This is really nice! I never thought a cape could look this good. The ones I have seen havent been that attractive and put me off them buy I might even wear this one.
