|Paco's cape - not mine!|
It's pretty simple to construct - two main pieces, two collar pieces and the back facing. The pattern is nicely drafted, however. There is turn of the cloth built into the bias under collar, something I always appreciate. No lining pieces were supplied, but it was very easy to create my own. Seriously, the hardest part of this was the hemming, a task that seemed to go on forever.
You'll have to wait a bit to see me model this, as it's dark and the beauty of this fabric is subtle. It was found by my husband, pro thrift-shopper that he is, a few years ago. I think it's Donegal tweed. It's certainly hairy enough! At first I thought it was pretty dull, but it has delightful flecks of colour, when you get close enough to see them. I have enough left to make a skirt.
For now, here's a view of the collar.
