    It is awesome! Love the fabrics you’ve used as well. Did you modify the pattern at all?

    This cape inspired me to buy the book you got it from and make a cape like yours. I am not as fortunate to wear red as you are but I am sure the cape will be beautiful. You made it so wonderfuly!!!!!!! and you look stunning in it. Thank you so much for your post, if it was not for you I would have not be inspired to make something like it.

    Can’t believe I didn’t comment on this one. It’s so well-made and looks lovely on you.

    Going to sew a cape in the same style as yours. :)

    This is gorgeous, so well done. How did you alter the pattern/what sleeves did you use? I would love to replicate this but am not sure how to do so!

    Reminds me of Nicolas Roeg’s film ’Don’t look Now’. It is set in Venice, and the little girl wears a red coat… spooky! Beautiful creation

      Profundo Rosso by Dario Argento for instance. As far as I remember, there is a children book involved in that film!
