DIY Wrap Cape | In Honor of Design
{Coated Denim: Henry & BelleWide Brim Fedora, Booties: Sam Edelman}
I admit, that capes are a very intimidating thing. You know what else is intimidating? A sewing machine. Well I am on a roll today friends of kicking intimidation in the face. You know what inspired me? Audrey Hepburn (of course)….
Mind you, I agree that nothing can beat fur and organza…..or Audrey. I translated this design to a version I felt I could actually wear in the coming months.
1 yard fabric (Update: double folded! So technically it is two yards. Apologies for any confusion! Most fabrics are folded over when cut, but just in case!)
(Tweed is great because you don’t need to sew a lining.)
4 yards Velvet Ribbon – 1 inch width (Find at Hobby Lobby or MJTrim)
2 Buttons
2 Hook and Latch Clasps
Fabric Scissors
All instructions included on the infographic:) If you want to print or email, download it here.
I have let you all off easy so far with super simple DIY’s. This one is intermediate, but I know you can conquer it. A cable knit sweater material or even full velvet would be fun too. I have grand plans for some mini versions for Veronica:D Will keep you posted on that one.
Have a happy weekend ahead!
