A couturier cape by master Fabiani – so simple in style, so much hidden hand work!

I simply could not wait for a sunny day. The weather is so unpredictable, I thought it would be a good idea to test my cape in the British everlasting rain

The pad stitching on all pieces has taken ages, however I got there in the end, and I am really pleased with the result.

Instead of lining I used another wool fabric for added warmth. Given that the under layer gets revealed, it is probably a good idea. All stitches must be out of sight.

The cape features welted pockets, opening at the back and closure with three press studs, which makes it really unusual.
