Strolling Cape

March Break helped me to finish my March make early! Hopefully, that means I’ll be able to sew something else this month. I’m working on another pair of Hudson pants for a friend.

I’m pretty happy with this Liesl + Co. Woodland Stroll Cape

Digital pattern. Download, tape and cut out yourself.

I chose the small size but I think the buttons pull it in too much at the sides. I can move them out though. I think I’d make the medium if I was to do it again or do the small with extra length. I’m not sure I love the big matching buttons on the side either. I’d consider making them smaller and really blending in with the fabric. Overall though it’s a super cute quick, lined number that I can see wearing lots. I picked up the fabric cheap at Fabricland on sale. The tweed actually has a hint of sparkle to it. I decided to jazz it up with some extremely soft and silky fuschia…
