You might have seen the latest fashion news that capes are "in"?
Stella McCartney has been showing capes for autumn / winter.
I have to admit to having a penchant for the poncho-esque. At University, I made myself a floor-length wool felt cape with a hood. I was a drama student, remember! But the fabric wasn't wind-proof and unless I wore a coat underneath, I froze, which kind of defeated the purpose. And it was very heavy!
It was my "French Lieutenant's Woman" look, exacerbated by my long red curls and wan expression. Ahem. Apparently there is talk of a remake of the film. But I digress.
This 1950's interpretation is rather fab, don't you think?
So much lighter and shapely. Not a hint of being wrapped up in a blanket!
Of course, I would need the wiggle dress to go with it.
Just the thing for Self-Stitched September!
