My take on Malissa

Added Dec 2, 2008

by rowanna78

Madrid, Spain






A mix of coat and cape, adapting the Malissa pattern
The sleeves, collar and button thingies are from an old skirt. It didn’t come ourQUITE how I was imagining, but it’s the first time I adapt a pattern, so I’m pretty happy

Material Notes

Brown corduroy and an old, and too small, checked wool skirt





I got the idea from a cape shown in Threadbaners by Enderby Designs

    Very creative! I love that you played with color and texture not to mention you also gave the pattern your own twist! Way to go!

    Great idea, I really like your fabric combination and amazing what one can get out of the Malissa pattern!

    Actually, I HAD to cut it that way because I didn’t have enough fabric! And it was a bit of an experiment, so I didn’t really want to spend money. Anyway, it looks better worn, I try to get some decent pictures :) Thansk for you comment!

    Interesting! A malissa cape. I like how you did not cut the fabric along the grain. However, maybe that’s why it doesn’t drape has you’d’ve liked too?
