Hey all Smiley Long time no post. Anyway here's what I've been up to - a drape cape with hood, pockets and epaulets! Made from cream jersey that's such a bitch to sew but is oh-so-soft. It's pretty easy to make one, it's basically a rectangle folded over, with a hood attached. I added details to jazz it up a little. Ignore my tired face and general disheveledness, these pictures were taken when I got home.















What d'you guys think?  Cheesy

Cheers and happy new year!

I realllly like this!  I've been meaning to make one for myself for the longest time, I even bought 2 patterns and some gorgeous sheer fabric that just makes me drool when I look at it...to make a really dressy one.  Have I done it? Noooo, of course not!  Maybe your post will be my final kick in the tush that I need to make something for myself!  I love the epaulets that dress it up, and the softness that just makes it look sooo luxurious! Wonderful job!

My co-worker has one of these and I've been trying to figure out hoe to make one ever since! I never thought of a rectangle! Thanks for the tip and let me say yours looks so nice and snuggly!
