I just started another patternmaking class, this one through Portland Sewing, so I really shouldn’t be sewing anything until I have a better grip on fit and all, but I am a daredevil, one accustomed to decades of sewing misjudgments!
So anyway, I decided to make this little capelet from the Korean sewing book I completely adore (read about it here). I have no idea about the sizes in this thing, so I just kind of guess. I wanted to line the capelet, but if I had, the armholes wouldn’t have fit. I think this will be handy in the summer for when I need a little somethin’ somethin’ to throw on, but we’ll see how much use I actually get out of it. It was a quick and easy little sewing project.

    I got some of that fabric too – I’m thinking a skirt but you make a capelet look pretty tempting…

    I just saw Wasara disposable dinnerware and my first thought was, “Wow! I love these!” and my second thought was…The Super Eggplant chick would love these!
    So, I thought I’d share.
