Therefore the next thing to complete is a capelet. Why am I making a capelet???? Because it would look cute and I love capes. Not to mention it is getting cold and although this will not keep the cold out at least when I am sitting in a cafe I will not feel the chill on my shoulder.
Once again I use a pattern from my sewing lolita book and stupidly I did not test this out because as soon as I cut the pieces out and sewed the side seam it did not look right. I have create square shoulders (or Romulan shoulders as I was shouting) !!! No pictures of the disaster as I had to correct the mistake as soon as possible which was quite simple. I just round the shoulder a bit more.
So after a bit of pattern alternation, I carried on and lets fast forward to the final result.
I have deviated from my original plans a little bit. The ruffles are suppose to be between the kimono and burgundy fabric but I forgot so instead I put it at the bottom.
Oh and I trimmed the collar as well as it was originally far too wide and looked out of place.
In addition, I was concerned that the capelet would be too light but once I sewed the ruffles at the bottom it weighted it down nicely so that is good.
Now it is the hair accessories which I hope I can finish during the evening this week....fingers crossed!
