Description

I had a trip planned in April 2013, travelling to Amsterdam to meet my sister in law who worked in the Hague, and then onwards to Germany. I wanted to make something special for the journey. This cape pattern immediately jumped out at me. I’d been given some beautifully thick wool fabric when a dear relative passed away and was holding on to it for the right project. This was it. The deep aubergine wool went perfectly with this fine dogtooth material and the deadline was in place. I redrafted the hood myself for a more cowl-like collar, added a satin lining, and finished the cape the night before we set off!

Even on the very windy deck of the ferry to Amsterdam this cape was lovely and warm and so comfy to wear. I wish I had some better photographs of it, but these will have to do for now.
