I’m very excited to wear this cape once it gets chilly enough! It feels like I’m wearing a blanket in public :)
I made the outer shell in a tweed, and lined the inside with polar fleece. I made the lining by bagging it. The only problem I ran into was that I sewed the zipper too low (below the collar), and by the time I realized I had already made the zipper cover-flap and didn’t want to make another. I fixed the problem by making a pleat in the hood to get rid of the collar.
Tweed for the outer shell
Polar fleece for the lining
60 cm zipper
Pleather for the back of the zipper cover-flap
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
