The Carnaby Cape Tutorial - The Finished Cape!

Carnaby Cape

Here is my finished Carnaby Cape! The wool is pretty heavy so it's not as drapey as my original cape (which you can see below) but it is very warm.

I love the colour and the way it has speckles through it. It has been a huge pain to photograph though, getting a consistent colour throughout my photos has been impossible.

I do love those bound openings at the waist! They look so beautiful and aren't as difficult to sew as you'd imagine.

I finished off the cape with these beautiful gold vintage buttons from 
Buttonmania, Kate always helps make the right decision.

Here is my original cape which I wear all the time! As you can see the fabric is lighter and has more drape to it than the maroon version above.
