I ordered black wool melton and silver poly satin for the lining. Capes like these take a LOT of fabric...6 yds of 60" for each. All went well untilI began to sew the 4 pieces together. I recalled, 10 years ago, after sewing several King Size duvet covers, vowing NEVER to sew a voluminous project again. Too late!
The clasp is a lovely heavy pewter celtic ornament, salvaged from the original cape.
Now, back to sewing for ME (after a good cleaning of the studio)!
