    Nice looking cape. I like both the color and the fit. The arms seem to be in the right place…and this is not so with all capes. Some can look very akward.

    I'm thrilled to think she made the pants and cape herself. The clothing I see in shops is very hard to do at home. For one thing you can't buy the fabrics and the level of finish is never the same but this gives me inspiration to think about sewing again. Thanks.
