Because I Was Cold

...and bored, I went ahead and made myself a cape to layer on top of a jacket I often wear for extra warmth. I pulled out some thermal quilted sateen I had in my fabric trunk, draped right onto my form, eyed and cut a doubled collar then added a woven rope toggle for closure. To achieve the shape there are no side or back seams, simply shoulder darts. All edges are finished with clean rolled hems. Not only does it supply extra warmth for these cold NYC days but adds that extra jaunty flare I so often go for!



Not to shabby for a quick idea and a little over an hour's time, what do you think?
