So, here's my cape for The Monthly Stitch Cape Challenge. I was beginning to wonder if I would finish it in time, it has been waiting for me to sew the hem for the last week. The pattern is from Burda 8/2011, and the fabric is an op-shop find from a couple of years ago. I think the fabric is woollen, I haven't done a burn test but it feels and behaves like wool. The arm slits could probably be a little higher but I'm not fussed enough to unpick them and resew. Next month's challenge is vintage patterns, not sure what I'm going to do yet but I'd better get planning.
