I went for it and made myself a Cape!!
When I saw the pattern at the store I impulsively purchased it. Then impulsively sewed it up! I loved the idea of something fun I could throw on to walk kids to school.
I love it when inspiration strikes and I follow through…
I used a cotton in medium weight, green herringbone although the pattern is small and lost in the pictures.
I tried a new technique and used bias tape to enclose the seams. I remember thinking at the time of sewing I wasn’t going to put in that much effort again, however I’m finding it a very endearing detail every time I wear it, so maybe I will do it again.
I made one alteration by extending the front piece so that it would overlap for warmth.
Thanks for taking a look!
