Crazy for Capes





{1, 2, 3, 4}

I'm absolutely in love with capes this fall. I've been obsessed ever since I saw my sister in law wear one last year. They have a dainty ladylike air about them and are so wonderfully vintage. I love how they seem to add a bit of mystery to the wearer. But mostly, I just love any excuse to legitimately wear a cape and pretend I'm back in Victorian England hurrying off to a winter ball with my fur muff and new evening gown. Or you know, something like that.

I think this might be a fairly simple project to undertake, so I've gathered materials to make my own. I haven't sewn in a while, so we'll see how this goes!

  2. Even the Limited has capes right now. We are so on trend. (Not surprising for you, but surprising for me. I want the first one. I want an excuse to buy big brassy military-esque buttons.

    1. Yes!!! I'm actually working on one now, but it's moving slowly. I want to get it done so I can actually wear it before it gets freezing.
