Description

The moment I saw this pattern I fell in love with it… I had leftover wool fabric from my dress and it was just about the right amount – even though I had to piece it together a tiny little bit. I added the velvet for some extra weight, warmth and luxury. I love the details (the pockets!) and the fact that it’s fully lined. I didn’t find it difficult, it was a very quick project, but I did give the pockets a trial run first (as I had absolutely no fabric to waste!). I had cool buttons picked out already, but then didn’t feel like cutting into my velvet, so I used three extra large snap bottons instead. Come on gals, I know there are others who have already completed this – I’d love to see other versions :-)

      Thank you! Well, it’s actually not warm enough for here right now, we have minus degrees Celsius at the moment… but I agree, this is my first cape ever and I think it’s cool!

    I never thought of making a cape, but now when I see yours, I think I’ll do it. It looks so good, I love how you used the velvet.

    i have some grey wool in the closet and i’ve been debating about whether to make a skirt, or this cape. i think you’ve convinced me to try this one… the velvet is a great touch. very nice.
