Halifax, United ...
The Monthly Stitch collective’s August challenge is Capes. I managed to get in just in time with this one.
I was limited by having to sew from my stash, so when I found this khaki suiting I thought it would be perfect for a Military style cape.
I based it on this Burda pattern and added button tabs to give it more of a military look.
I didn’t follow the instructions well, so had some trouble with the neck and it ended up a bit uneven!
