Remember when I said I was going to make a cape for myself?…well I did…I did yesterday…well, its a cape shirt….I had some boucle’ I wanted to use initially but when I got ready to sew it up it just screamed blazer and skirt!…I spotted another piece of fabric and then another and I thought hmmmm cape shirt and skirt?….why yes, don’t mind if I do…..I was going to make the cape as outerwear but my sewing plans ALWAYS change….the fabric always wants to do something else; and I let it have its way like ALL THE TIME….
For my cape shirt I used a rust-colored pashmina and a silky feeling tie dye fabric for my skirt…..I copped both fabrics from Hancock’s…..the skirt is supposed to be A-line but Pink Cookie is such a skinny arse that you can barely tell….it should show better when I wear it…and this button thing? I have to toot my own horn and say its effortless, for me it really is…Did I mention that I friggin’ LOVE this outfit?….for those that don’t know me well, retro/vintage is one of my absolute faves….hence even the thought of making a cape….(well besides that fact that Super Girl is another one of my alter egos)….so damned elegant and lady-like….and this outfit (the skirt does) sports three Pantone Fall 2013 colors which are: Koi, Samba, and Carafe….go check ’em out when you get a chance…the Spring 2014 colors are already introduced too!!!!!…If I left anything out or you wanna know more about my new fit let me know…I’m always ready to talk sewing!….got a few pictures for you good people and I’ll talk to y’all soon!
P.S. My next post will probably be about our
