Well we finally got some work done on this today. I’ve attached the cape. I originally wanted to make it snapped and detachable for cleaning, but the weight of the fabric was too much to do it without it pulling in strange places. So it is sewn down.



My “I’m so done with this today” face. I’m finding that I will need to narrow my left wrist part of the undershirt sleeve a little, as it is not bunching as nicely as the right hand. But I think the cape sleeves sit nicely and the outside is longer than the inside.

As for construction wise, the visible seams are clean right now. The neck is still unfinished as that will connect to the outer layer of the hood, and then the inner layer of the hood will tidy that up and add the trim. I’ve also included the two arm seams you can see on the reference photo. They kind of sit on either side of the shoulder. A lot of this is still going to be covered up by the hood/wrap combo that will finish off the top layer.

I also love how this fabric is like the horse of many colours and can look so different depending on the lighting Image

Forgot to add how the underside looks! So the cape is sewn pretty tight around the armpits, then I did the back middle where I wanted the bottom of the cape to sit at bum level. Then I just tucked in the excess so the inside cape still has a nice rounded curve without extra puckers. Inside sleeve on the right for reference and outer cape pulled up at the neck.

How are you getting on with this Chantel? Think you’re almost there now aren’t you?

I am...I've hit a pause as I've started graduate school last month. But, BenaeQuee is working on my custom purse, so I think that is gonna give me some motivation. All that is left it to finish engineering the hood/wrap.
