If you’ve been reading my blog with any sort of regularity you already know how much I love the Elisalex bodice; it’s become a true TNT for me over the last 2 years. And now, the Anna pattern is quickly becoming one as well!
I still have about 10 items that I’ve made this year that need to be blogged about but I wanted to skip ahead and show you the first thing I made with my NEW sewing machine. Read all about my new machine here!
Try not to laugh, but I was inspired to make this cape for two reasons. First, the cashmere cape I tried on in NYC was still haunting me with its huge price tag and second, because after seeing Lord Grantham in his military cape in Downton season 5. The way he just swung on his cape as he somewhat rudely addressed Mr. Bricker, it was just wonderful! He looked like such a badass and I needed a badass cape of my own.
