1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Adding sleeves to a cape pattern on: March 18, 2013 07:15:14 AM
Hi lovlies!

My mum is getting married in December of this year and has asked me if I could make her a full length cape with a hood to go over her wedding dress. I was sure I could help her when I said yet, but after looking at the patterns she had in mind I'm not sure sure now!

She would like Cape B from this pattern: http://www.simplicitynewlook.com/5794/#.UUcNW1tOqao. She loves the lining, and the hood, but she would like the sleeves from this pattern: http://www.simplicitynewlook.com/9887/#.UUcX6ltOqao.

I told her that was fine as I was positive I could add the sleeves, but I'm not feeling wobbly about it all. I'm an avid crafter, and enjoy sewing but this project would be using velvet for the outside and satin inside, and for starters I dislike sewing with velvet/satin. Eeek.

I haven't received the patterns yet, but on first glance, would it definitely be possible to add the sleeves? Any pointers on how to approach this would be fantastic.

Thanks!

Hey there!

I've recently started crafting more, and have been working on my bookbinding!

This was one of the first pieces I made recently. It's a 1/4 bound petite journal/notebook with 24 blank, white-coloured pages (48 sides). It measures 14.8cm x 10.1cm (5 x 4"). Tweed green book cloth and high-quality 150gsm Kaisercraft paper.







Comments and Criticism welcome! Smiley
