|Wool fabric and New York Cape Pattern.|
I've always loved a cape and a poncho! I'm not sure why but there is something about the swish of the fabric and the way you can hide your arms underneath. I do own a few capes but when I spied this button up version with a hood from the Tessuti folk, I knew that I would have to give it a go! You can visit their website for all kinds of fabric goodness. Be warned it's very tempting!

You can check out the Tessuti blog post about the New York Cape pattern and some beautiful images of some made up! As you can see from the top image, I've decided to go with a pretty graphic orange and black large hounds tooth print which is quite playful. Don't worry you won't miss me in a crowd. Unfortunately the New York Cape pattern was sooooo popular that they sold out online! If you keep an eye on their online store, I'm sure that they will recreate it for you cape lovers out there.

I still need to get some stuff for my cape, buttons and binding as it isn't lined. Oh and set some time aside to make this cute hooded baby! The way I've been so busy of late, I'll probably be wearing it in New York in their Winter!
Check out the lovely folk at Tessuti and definitely visit their store in Melbourne, the girls are lovely and very knowledgeable! We heart Tessuti!
