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.
