In between clients, certification for 2012 US tax preparation, Christmas and the infinity of a bad back I have managed to make some headway on the cape.
It is fully lined in a purple jacquard cotton. It hangs wonderfully and is a nice fit on the shoulders. To the lining I have added pockets from some scrap black hemp linen leftover from a vintage dress a few years back.
I have added the brass dragonfly’s as closures for the front.
From my jewellery box I am using beads and unworn pendants as fobs on the end of a silk ribbon to hold the cape closed.
