So, I finished the cape. But wait, you say, wasn't this supposed to be a different pattern? Very observant, grasshopper. When I went to the local fabric store to buy silk with which to line the yet-to-be-made cape, I came across this design and it felt right.
The best thing about the cape is that it's like a snuggie but I don't feel ashamed to wear it outside of the apartment.
Oh yeah, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
