The Audrey Cape Outfit


I am practically giddy with my latest sewing projects. I am soooo happy with how The Audrey Cape turned out!

 I followed the tutorial found at Simple Simon and Co. for this rather easy project. But what I love about it is that it looks more complicated than it was. (Or at least, I think it does.) I found this purplish-pink wool at Joann's (50% off this week!) and the silky liner (clearance shelf!) and put the the two together to make this cape. I made the button too.
 It has such a vintage look to it, hence the name. I don't imagine my mom would enjoy being called vintage, but this is something that I imagine she might've worn when she was a little school girl. It just has that look to it.
Here's a look inside at the lining.

 And since the cape is made just like a circle skirt, I decided to make one of those too out of my remaining wool. I followed Dana's circle skirt tutorial at MADE.
 Since it's been cooler around here for the last week or so, I figured this outfit, paired with some thick white tights and mary jane stride rites would look great for Easter mass. And egg hunting.
I cannot WAIT to put my little girl in these tomorrow morning!!!

  1. Your cape looks great! Super fabric choice and the matching skirt is great...We're starting the sew along for Project Run and Play on Monday and it is a remix of Dana's skirt---you should upload it to the Flicker group!
