I've always wanted a cape and I've always wanted something with a big hood. Unfortunately I could never find any of these things on something I really liked and so I decided to set myself a challenge and make my own hooded cape! It's not quite finished yet (the front just needs neatening up and the turning hole closed) but I couldn't resist taking pictures in the snow!



As you can see, the front is pinned and needs neatening so that the lining doesn't show.



Looove the hood! Exactly what I wanted! (although maybe a little too deep as it falls down, covering my eyes, sometimes)



So much fun to twirl in! I love showing off the lining too!



I've gone into more detail on my blog here : http://thepenguintheory.wordpress.com/2013/02/12/winter-cape/

Hope you all like it!

Gorgeous! I have a cape too but I'm wary of wearing it, not enough people do. Let's you and me (and all the other awesome craftsters with capes) bring them back as outerwear!
