Style Sunday: The Cape

They tell me that spring is just around the corner, or rather that spring is just behind that epic rain storm that is forecast.

While I’m not in any hurry to ditch my winter coat just yet, it might be a good time to get stitching for spring, you know, so there are a few new handmade pieces ready for when the spring weather finally hits.

Every spring time there is one garment that I always wish I owned, a cape. I’m not talking about a red Superman cape (although, that would actually be quite rad) I’m talking about a super cute, cross-over weather kind of cape.
There is just something about them, I mean they just look so, freaking lush. While this gorgeous Sessun Hooded Cape, £195 Asos, in zingy ginger wool-blend is just breathtaking, it’s a little [read: a whole lot] out of my budget, so it’s back to the spring stitching plan for me I think! Check out this inspiration for making your own handmade Cape!

Oh! Sweet wow! This is just perfect, you know when you see a pattern and you know that this will be the thing that you pick out every morning and you create you OFTD around it? Well, for me this is just that! What’s on your spring stitching list?

    Loves these! The classic red is my fave, like an urban little red riding hood!
