Diy Cape

Diy Cape
My latest obsession is the mighty cape.  There is no easier way to pull separates together to create a polished look.

This cape was made using this Ana Sui faille which is a fabric that gives this cape a more classic look.  I also envision this fabric as a perfect midi or a beautiful floor length skirt because of it’s stiff drape.

I lined the cape with this charcoal charmeuse which I happen to love to use as a lining.

This cape was made with Vogue V1322 with the following alterations:

-Removed both placket pockets
-Added a welt pocket
