Plainfield, New ...
I fell in love with the Loro Piana Sloane Cape. But at a price tag of $4650 i thought that was a bit ridiculous.
So i used new look pattern #6007 (on sale from sewingpatterns.com) and i got 3 awesome yards of green wool on sale and made my cape. in all it took me 6 hrs to make. and i LOVE IT! my total cost was $30. so i saved myself $4620. not bad
here is the cape that inspired it all:
green wool, black cotton sateen (for under collar and tie)
