But, it occurs to me that I probably need a Sherlock cape coat. You know, the type that is a coat with a little shoulder cape.
I really like the old Vogue pattern--so witchy! I found the image just the other day. I found the image of the green plaid one a few years ago--it looks like it is made from the Vogue pattern doesn't it? I love these little instances of coming-together!
Right now my plan is to add a shoulder cape to a double-breasted jacket pattern I already have, dye (urp!) the cotton velveteen, find some lining and go from there. But, if I can get my hands on that Vogue cape pattern, plans will change!
