A few weeks ago, I posted plans for this project, using Simplicity 8353 pattern (1969) and a remnant of wool that I purchased a year ago, at G Street fabrics.
It took a while for me to get it done because I’m trying to finish up grad school and it doesn’t leave much time for sewing. But I finally got it finished and even had a chance to snap a few pics.
Here is the cape, waiting for a final steaming and some top-stitching.
I haven’t made up my mind about the closure. I have a pretty frog that I bought for the project but I also like the tab/button option.
Further details and a few more pics are over on my blog, So, anyway….
