Vintage Cape and Apron Sewing- The Cape-ron?

April 13, 2011

Hey All!
Here are a few projects I have been up to for the last couple of weeks. I have just been working on a bunch of stuff all at the same time, because I like to mess with my sanity like that. Anyway, I finished up a cape and an apron, and I plan on wearing them both, but probably not together. Who knows, though? I could end up grilling in a rainstorm. I won’t say never. Hmmmm- did I just invent the Cape-ron? If you would like to see a few more pics and read the ramblings of a woman who just gets nuttier with each swoosh of her super practical formal spring cape, stop by Farmhouse Garden.

  1. I made the dress in the '70s in black Crimplene with a white collar and wore it to work for several years. The fit was beautiful and garnered many compliments. I still have the pattern, in fact, I have never thrown away or given away a pattern although I often accept other folks give aways. After all these years I'm lucky enough to have roughly the same figure so I'm planning to make it again, maybe with a 3/4 sleeve this time.
