Caped Crusader

Hello! Hello! And, happy (nearly) New Year!

It was very important for me to end the year on a high note. See, I’ve been in a rut. For the past several months, I’ve been searching for my sew-jo. After many failed attempts, I think I found it with this cape sewn from Simplicity 7262.

This cape Represents a lot of first attempts at new skills for me, and it was a huge boost to my sewing-self-esteem. I am completely thrilled with the finished product. Also,  because knitting is my first love, I crafted some coordinating accessories to complete the look! Many more pictures and more information on these projects can be found on my blog. I LOVE visitors, so feel free to stop by to say, “Hello”!

  • Plaid matching for the win! This is adorable – you should be insanely proud.

    • Thanks, very much Katherine! I took special care to try matching my plaids. It was my first time working with one, so I was nervous. :-D

  • This is super-cute! You did a really great job with it, and the matching accessories are a hit :)

    I live in the tropics but seeing so many gorgeous capes and coats online has given me this crazy/wild idea to attempt one … in the very far future, though ;-)

  • Wow! Your cape is amazing!
    I love it and it looks fabulous on you. Great work!

  • haha! Your “sew-jo!” I never heard that before (but will add it to my vocabulary). I have a love-hate relationship with capes – love the romance of them but hate the functionality. However…plaid makes EVERYTHING better!! Your cape is beautiful!! And now I am forced to take a second look at my cape patterns… :)

  • You look incredible, the gloves and hat are perfect as well!

  • I love your cape! It’s perfect and (almost) makes me wish it was colder down here so I could make one too.

  • This is awesome! I love everything about it!

  • This is the best
