Vintage style Capelet

Added Jan 21, 2012

South Coast, Eng...






A just-covering-the-shoulders capelet I made in blue felt to test the pattern …. but I like how it turned out so gave it some rows of top-stitching on the edges and the seams as a decorative detail and called it finished.

Material Notes

wool felt

    I’ve also been looking for something I like this for ages and now delighted I have a pattern to work with. I’m going to make it in fur to to go with a 1930’s dress I’m making for a friends wedding! Thanks again!

    Thanks so much for this pattern! I have been hunting for one just like this for the last few weeks – going to give it a bash with some fur ;)
