A cape coat in gray wool/cashmere tweed blend.
This is my first pattern project so I went for a pattern labelled easy. I used McCalls M5913 for the basis of the cape, but this pattern is unlined so I added a my own lining.
I also did the facings and belt back in black wool flannel for some accent colour. I used self covered buttons. I like the belt as it gives some shape to the cape. More pictures and info on my blog here
