2013 UPDATE: The tutorial now lives here http://analoguechic.com/2008/12/capelet-tutorial/
Do it up! Show and tell!

*squeal!!*  I love this capelet!
I made this from an oversized, circa-late 80s sweatshirt with a great buffalo check print.  It's black and very light pink-- it may be a light pink that faded with time, I suspect it was white and someone washed it with something red-- it's pink now.  I used an H&M skirt with a really cute print for the inside collar, piping, and the kanga-pocket in the front (not in photos).  I made the button from 4 layers of adhesive-backed felt.

front/side


inside collar- sorry it's blurry.


arm slits

Ideally, I would have liked to line the whole thing in something hot pink and silky, but really, I was too lazy and too eager to just start wearing it.  I was inspired by this other Alli's cape http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=262005.msg2937630#msg2937630-- so mod!  And double breasted would have been great, but as large as that sweatshirt was, it just wasn't enough fabric.

Looking forward to your comments/critiques! Thanks to my fiance www.foldsomething.c om for photo-taking.

TUTORIAL NOW AVAILABLE here.

Thanks a lot, everyone!
This is my own "slash & burn" design (i.e. no real planning, just start cutting and stitching, and working in goof-ups as they come, hence the weird shoulder poof...)-- Blackbird, I will try to come up with a basic how-to and edit this post. Stay tuned...

I know its not exactly the same, but Thread Banger actually posted a how-to for a very similar capelet just two days ago:
