So, yeah, I may have made this waaaaay back at the start of the month.
And you’ve even seen a glimpse of it here already, in Mel’s Capes Cubed post.
And now, finally, here’s a post just for it – my first ever (well, aside from an ill-informed decision back in high school) cape!
And I just have to say – this pattern is fun to make up! It’s super fast, cutely tailored (check out the shoulder seams – it’s like a mini jacket only not!) and doesn’t take up much fabric so is perfect for stash busting.
Plus, if you make two shells and use one for the lining, you can make it reversible. Win!
One one side – a pink acrylic blend with a subtle herringbone.
On the other – a grey plaid something-synthetic.
Put ’em together and what have you got? The Pisces capelet! (Get it? Pisces – the sign with two fish. Making this pushed me out of my sewing-style comfort zone, like a fish out of water. In a good way.)
(Want to know more? There are some details over on my blog.)
