The title made me giggle. As if I set myself up for that! haha! Yes the cape is a fail! I can easily admit it! Or maybe half of it is. But you can decide.
I maybe was, but I also wanted a nautical theme and then just couldn’t afford it. Instead it has turned into a sort of wizard cape!
It is not all bad though. I learned a few things:
1. When top stitching a cape, do it before you insert the lining!
2. Fleece like fabric is not suitable for a cape.
3. I love capes!
Now some detailed views of the good and the bad!
And a couple bad photos of me wearing it!
So what is next?
Well this is a nice muslin and I learned a lot. As frustrating things are I mainly made the wrong fabric choice! It is too stiff and also not suited as an outside garment. BUT it will make a nice in the house cape to keep me warm.
Or maybe a cat blanket! haha!
I will make a more sensible fabric choice and also make it a lot smaller. The hood is a bit Star Warsy, no?
