Hi, all!  I've been wanting to make a shoulder cape for ages, but didn't get around to it until my brother gave me this old work shirt.  I loved the plaid, and thought it had the potential to be a great little cape.  It took some trial and error to bring the shirt to it's full potential, but I love how it turned out.





If you'd like to make your own, I've posted a tutorial on my blog: http://onepearlbutton.blogspot.com/2008/09/from-mens-shirt-to-sweet-and-pretty.html (I would post it here, but it's ridiculously image heavy!).

Thanks for looking!
