The Cream Colored Cape

December 31, 2016

I am on a mission to build a wardrobe with timeless pieces that I sew myself.  


One day I stopped in Helen Enox Fine Fabrics in OKC and I was just looking around for inspiration and I saw this wool cape on display.  The fabric felt so good, so I started looking at it to see if I could sew something like this.   Luckily, the lovely ladies in the store were more than willing to help. They measured me and cut the fabric out for me.  All I had to do was go home and sew the hems.  And honestly, I would not have pursued this without their help!


I finished this one in March 2016, so I didn't get to wear it too many times before it got to hot.  When fall came, I was so happy to pull it out again.  This cape really dresses up anything and I feel so elegant when I wear it (with jeans)!


And here's the pics. Please click to enlarge.


 Supplies: 2-3 yards of wool, taupe thread, off white embroidery thread, spray adhesive
