Cutesy lil Capelet

Jane not so plain Janome & I have had our eyes on this wee capelet for a while now. It was my very first downloaded pattern, from my all time favourite Peppermint Magazine Sewing School. I printed out the pattern onto A4's and gluesticked them together, then cut out the pieces (I cut the largest size 14, perhaps I could go a bit smaller next time)...and then I headed straight to my scraps pile to fossik about. 
I really really love love cape style. You can see more on my pinterest board here, and a recently made full size cape here. This capelet was fun and pretty simple to put together. I am going to do a capelet class/sewing social soon, I'm just awaiting the venue confirmation. Just email me if you would like to join in, it will be in Auckland, and on a Saturday.
Can you tell I LOVE polka dots? 
Wool fabric was free - from scraps from other projects. Cotton slime coloured lining was free - from end of bolt from a local designer.
...and finishing up with some dawky facials.

  1. I love the shoulder seams, they make a nice line and look practical for keeping the capelet in place. Your fun photos make me want to try this more that the Peppermint model, so fun! :)

  2. Adorable!! I love this little caplet. Great fabric choices as well. I have a few patterns for capes and am going to make on as soon as the weather cools down here.

  3. Oh, also just downloaded the link for this capelet, very cute pattern! Thanks for posting.

  4. How nice to see my pattern being used! You've done a beautiful job, it looks so cute. I'm really glad you like it, it was fun to design.

    1. Sandra! so nice to learn the maker of such an adorable lil capelet. and so nice of you to stop by. I am going to make more of these.

  5. Cute cape! Loving the lining too!

  6. I was just about to start on one of these capes and realised I couldn't find a size chart - did you just go on your clothing size or how did you chose what size to sew? :)

  7. Ooh, it looks fabulous, I love the lining! I've been eyeing up that pattern on the Peppermint website for a while, might have to give it a go!


SEW LOVE hearing from you - thanks for stopping by! x
