Hi everyone! This is my first post here, but I’ve been admiring everyone’s makes for some time. I wanted to share my completed cape from this winter – Simplicity 6651.
Here’s the pattern envelope:
I made this out of a loose-weave wool with a faux fur collar and a poly satin lining. I even did bound buttonholes! I had to draft the lining and facings myself – a feat I am quite proud of.
However, after all that effort I’m just not that fond of it. It might be that it is just too big for me (I made a medium and I am 36″ in the bust). Or it might just be the style. It was an excellent learning experience though! So now the question is, to keep or not keep? And what do people think about capes in general?
