Last fall, at the factory outlet of Tandem (Bühl), I had bought enough woolen double fabric to make two capes, one for my daughter and one for myself.
My Cypress Cape was finished at the end of winter and worn until the first warm days, it's so cozy.
Camden Cape pattern by Seamwork.
I immediately cut the pieces and began to sew. The fabric being double, a cozy feltlike wool blend at the outside and a knit at the inside, I chose omitting the lining and making the same finish as for my own cape. I changed the center inserting a twoway zip with an underlaid band.
Having sewn the last vertical seam, I realised that I had closed the armslits, too!
graded the fabric to the topstiches.
Pattern: Camden Cape, Seamwork
Fabric: double fabric feltlike/knit
Alterations: twoway zip with underlaid band
omitted the lining; added neckfacing and slitfacing
Do you want to have a look at the other hundred of German sewists who are meeting Susanne at MeMadeMittwoch?
Next weekend about 40 sewists will meet at Würzburg for the southern german sewing bee AnNäherung_Süd 2016. I am quite excited to meet them!
