New York, New Yo...
It’s no secret we love capes here at BurdaStyle, so we turned to our favorite cape pattern to create this week’s project. If you’ve never donned a cape, maybe now is the time, they are a bit dramatic and can enhance your outfit in a flash. But all the fun in making this one was in the fabric, lining and trim, thanks to Britex Fabrics, a San Francisco retail fabric landmark and a must-see for designers, sewers, DIYers and anyone seeking sewing inspiration.
We cut the body from a turquoise wool tweed which is subtly flecked in a melange of colors like cobalt and creme. The plum colored lining— an Armani silk remnant adds a pop of floral and color, and the vintage wagon wheel buttons seal the deal, making this our favorite by far!
