Done! A nice quick and useful project :) I wore it last night and I was glad I had it, it got quite cold in the early hours of the morning…
As I mentioned I lined it with red velvet (not real velvet unfortunately, but the fake velvet that still looks and feels nice) and added a red ribbon.
I realized last night how much I love the cut of this (cape/shrug, whatever you want to call it :)), it’s easy to take on and off, and it keeps me warm. But it’s not as bulky as a jacket. I also like it inside-out:
Reminds me of Little Red Ridinghood, but I’m ok with that :) The way this red velvet catches the light is amazing! It’s just soo red:
There’s not too much to write about this project, pretty straight forward, practically no problems (the basting probably helped!), so that’s it!
The next project on my list is another Butterick 2952, this time in a dusty pink color! (and with perfect fit hopefully :))
