Hello everyone, I am kind of nervous here, this is my first blog post ever!
I first saw this pattern, the Woodland Cape from Liesl&Co when it was released a few months ago. I found it really lovely, but a Cape was not my first choice of garment to sew, and this was on the peak of summer in Brazil, so I didn’t buy the pattern
Fast forward a few months, and The Montlhy Stitch was created, and what was the first challenge? A Cape! What a great excuse to buy the pattern and actually sew the cape!
I have to say, getting good enough pictures to post was way more difficult than actually sewing the Cape… It’s a great pattern, very easy to follow, quick to cut and sew. I didn’t even bother with the gathering step before you turn it right side out, and it still turned out perfect!
The fabric is this cute baby cord, black with some red flowers, remind me of Liberty prints… This was also my first lined garment ever, I used this light black wool on the inside, so the cape is warm enough for our mild winters in Brazil.
The pictures don’t do justice, it really looks better in real life, but if I didn’t post this now, I might never post them at all.
I am now looking forward to sewing a vintage pattern for next month, nothing like a challenge to keep me motivated!
See you soon!
