Description

I made this cape for Autumn Winter. I wanted something that was good quality, stylish and warm for the winter. It is made from 100% wool. I used an old Burda pattern ( Pattern 7619. I think it is out of print but I found it on ebay). It has epaulettes on the shoulders,arm holes at the front and a half back belt. It took about 15 hours to make. It fits perfectly and I’m delighted with the finished product!

Material Notes

100% black wool, fusable interfacing for collar and facings, 2cm silver buttons, black thread

    It’s gorgeous! Looks very elegant and yet cool. I’ve been wanting a cape lately (biking cape!) and this really inspires!

    I love how it turned out! For myself, I would have made it longer to also go with my period clothing as well as my modern clothes.

    What did you line it with?
