Orange is the New Cape

Get ready. Because there’s more where this one came from. This past summer, I made a BUNCH of capes. I mean, a BUNCH. And I will tell you now, that each and every one is one-of-a-kind because it was my way of using up allllll of this extra fabric that was looming in my little fabric closet.

This one turned out to be one of my faves (You can find it, here). Normally, I don’t favorΒ orange…but after finishing this cape, I may try to work with the zesty color a bit more.

I love using unexpected color-combinations. I think it really makes things interesting so that is exactly what I did with this orange faux suede. I used a really cool, kind of iridescent purple lining and, well…yes. Just yes. Let’s just say that extra yard of orange faux suede and purple polyester I needed to use up were just destined to mingle as one.
