You capelet is so pretty. I love your creative closure. Even though it may have been a pain to sew you ended up with a very stylish garment that looks fantastic on you!

Your version is so cute! I especially like your modifications. Your husband did a wonderful job on matching the plaid.

You are so stylish as always. All the fashion magazines are mad about plaid right now. Nice!

I love this so much i'm going to make it too!! DH, well done, it puts it into high end RTW immediately. Takes a long time but so well worth it in the end. Even some expensive wear doesn't get it right always - I got a lovely pair of pants in a sale recently priced at 80 UK for 20 and the inseam plaid was a bit out!! Idont think it will show -might adjust it myself. Takes people like homesewers to get it right!!!

I LOVE this! I love the plaid even though it was a pain. What a great hubby to match it for you! Looks great with the yellow cowl neck!

Hilarious comment regarding the CRAP from Walmart. But your cape is darling!

It looks great! Sorry about the crappy interfacing - that sounds like an especially horrific one. I've never attempted to match plaid before but I have some plaid knit fabric I was thinking of trying soon.

Oh, and LOL on Tony helping you out on the plaid matching - totally sounds like something Jim would do too. He has a lot of patience for things like that. Those two are so similar!

Cute!! Hubby did a fantastic job of matching the plaid. Is he for hire? ;-)

I have to identify with Emelle...your husband and mine are two different kinds of guys....mine's definitely not into the perfection/refinement required for anything in the sewing room (or the kitchen, for that matter!). Really, really nice garment, in spite of the hassles.

very cute.....I saw two pieces of this fabric left at Hoover Hancocks....but once I stretched it out on the cutting table and thought about that plaid....I got ahold of myself and put it back! did a great job though, and so did your DH (I would not let mine near any sewing project I had going!), ML

The capelet looks wonderful with the cowl. Tell your hubby great job on the plaid, how nice of him.

Ha! It may have been a pain in the !@! for several reasons, but you look GREAT in it! And your hubby did a fabulous job matching the plaid . This is so cute - wear it with pride.

Really like the front fasteners that you used in place of buttons. Love the colors in the plaid.

Plaid looks AWESOME - but I agree - you were INSANE to attempt it! Great result, though!

Fabulous capelet, Adrienne. Love the fabric, fasteners and style - it suits you so well. Hubby did a superb job on matching the plaid :))
