Soooo, watching Threadbangers one day, I fel in love with Corrine's cape, which is from here: http://www.enderbydesigns.com/apparel.php... BUT, I wanted sleeves. I had an old checked skirt (way too small)

and I wanted to use that, but there was't enough fabric in it, so I pulled out my box of odds and ends and found some brown corduroy, and an idea appeared! I searched for a pattern that I could at least adapt some and foud this: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/2669. So, I basically took of the collar and cuffs, made the front less wide and in two pieces, and started to sew them up. I drafted my own peter pan collar (came out a bit wonky), and when I was about to put it on, I realized it was too short, so I took the waistband from the skirt, which was also brown cord, and basted it on

I don't know what I did wrong, but in the end the collar was just fine  Huh
Anywho, it came out with I much wider neck than I wanted, but that's cool

and here it is:

(excuse my very messy sewing area)
