I made another...
Another O+S Forest Path cape.
I sewed it up in another piece of fabric from our Melbourne shopping trip.
It is a lovely, soft, fluffy wool/poly mix. Quite loosely woven so I edged stitched all the edges,(before construction) not just the shoulders (as directed in the pattern instructions).
I lined it with a pearl pink silk satin.
A happy mistake, I cut this out during our recent SA power outage and in that dark I mixed up the lining I had set aside for this and some silk for a top for Zara.
The silk was slippery to sew but will breathe all the better and there is plenty left for Zara.
I made Tilly the size 8 as I want it for next Winter, it is definitely not overly big on her (her chest put her in the 4) so I think it is a pattern you can safely size up in.
The extra room will mean she can wear layers under it. This cape will be very handy and to fill the void until I make her new coat.
The buttons are enamelled shell from Ebay.
I just love them.
I really love the buttons they are very cute.
the in side is made out of silk and it is very soft.
The out side is very warm because it is made of wool.
