I finally finished the capelet I was working on. Thank goodness because I was starting to get bummed that I hadn't made a completed project in a while.
I used the pattern by Meg Allan Cole from this book to make the Rockin' Retro Capelet. The second I saw the pattern I had to buy the book immediately!
I like the pattern, it was easy to sew for someone new to sewing like me, and there were only a few pieces. I used the fabric that I bought from my trip to Mood and I feel like it was the perfect choice! I bought the pink lining fabric locally. The pattern actually didn't require a lining, but I like the color combination and feel, so I am glad I included it.
A back view. Oh, don't you just love the ambiance in these photos? Hahaha.
So, I feel like this "hood" is definitely more fashion than function, it won't fit over my head. Then again, I do have a HUGE head. That's ok though, I'd rather showcase the pretty pink lining.
