Another fun plaid cape
You may remember the cute and wearable cape I made recently out of vintage Pendleton wool. I used a McCall's pattern and had fun picking out classic wool plaid-appropriate buttons.
I made another cape, too... a different one in many ways but also a simple capelet that pairs with jeans and other easy-to-wear pieces. It's made of a vintage 80's suiting wool we got a bolt of at Goodwill, and I didn't use a pattern at all on it. Just figured how long I wanted things to be and added some bound buttonhole-type belt holes in the front. Add a self-fabric belt, and voila--a warm but lightweight layer!
