Cape of capes!
Wednesday was my day off of studying, so I had plenty of time to whip up a cape. I have been thinking about capes for ages and ages. Thought about knitting one but couldn't find a pattern and it would take weeks to make anyway. So off I went to Spotlight....joy. Though it kind of was joyful, most unusual.
Found the perfect pattern - New Look 6916. Found the perfect fabric which just happened to be on the sale table with an extra 50% off. Found the perfect cotton lining, looks like paisley but has skulls all over it.
Well the pattern wasn't 100% perfect. It didn't have a hood. And it had to have a hood. Took a few attempts at pattern making- doh! But it all worked out nicely.
Just needs to be a smidgen colder so I can wear it.
