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 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:

Material Notes

green wool, black cotton sateen (for under collar and tie)

    That’s awesome! Even if you had decided to make the cape with cashmere like your inspiration, it would have cost so much less! I love the colour too :)

    Your cape is beautiful and the colour gorgeous. You should be so proud of yourself as you have done a wonderful sewing job. Plus you saved all that money. Well done.
