I saw a cute capelet last year and thought it would be handy to wear over my summer dresses last October while I was at work for a month. I finished sewing it today so obviously I did not wear it at work, I had to make do with my button cardigans instead. Oh well!
This is a Retro Butterick pattern B5032. It was really quick and easy to sew which helps as I am not the most patient person when it comes to sewing clothes.
This is for me, and it does fit but I thought it would be easier to ask for a stand in model to let me take the photos. I chose to top stitch right around the edges which was not in the pattern but does help it sit more neatly. I lined it in some Denyse Schmidt fabric which I already had in my stash, but did not think to take a photo of that part.
I think I will get to wear this a bit this year as I have six months casual work starting this term. We are enjoying the last of our holidays before Possum and I start school; her fist year in Kindergarten and myself for work, both together!
