My Victorian Cape- Robin

Lisa and I made capes.  We started at the same time, but I finally finished mine. She made hers with a hood.  I added a ruffled stand up collar and used a button-on shoulder treatment that becomes a huge ruffled hood to fit over my bonnets.  This is yet another  "finish that dang thing" project. The hem baffled me as I could not get it right.  I finally ended up lowering the dress dummy to have the hem puddle on the floor and pinning the shoulders to the dummy so it wouldn't shift. I now love my cape and it has seen several outing.  Finishing things is good!

  1. Lowering the dress dummy to get an even hem....(cue: palm to forehead). I salute your brilliance!
