I’m Making a Cape!

The other day when I was choosing fabric with my sister for her birthday dress (link here) I saw these in the end of roll basket.

I know – white wool – what an extravagance!!! …and how impractical…

A long time ago I blogged about Capes, Yay or Nay? after I first fell in love with Erica’s Camel Cape. Since then I’ve seen some lovely capes that other bloggers have made. The overwheming response was that people in blogland think that capes are awesome. And who am I to argue with bloggers? (A very opinionated lot!) So I guess I’m making a cape.

I think I’ll go with the same pattern Erica used – Vogue 8776. I love that this pattern is loose fitted and has the high collar so snuggle my face into when it gets cold.

So more opinions please – shall I go with this pattern and this fabric?

  2. Thumbs up on both pattern and fabric. I will say that I made a white wool swing jacket and although I love it, soil is a consideration… you have to be more careful when you wear it.

    1. Yes I think so too. Though on the plus side this pattern (by virtue of being a cape) doesn’t have elbows to get grubby. I will have to be careful of the collar though and snuggling a face full of make up into it!
