This cape is fabulous. You've done a wonderful job. Thank you for the details about how you lined it. I'll be following suit.

Thank you for the nice comments. JTink, I attached the bias binding to the facing using my binder foot (I sewed the cape on my featherweight, and it is the binder foot that came with it). After I attached the binding to the facing, I just laid the facing on the lining and sewed it down. I tried to sew it down on the same stitching line as the binding attachment, but I wasn't very careful. I then basted the edges, so the facing and lining were one unit. I hope that makes sense.

This is so pretty. I'm interested in how you attached the bias tape to the facing edge and then attached it to the lining. Such a nice clean finish.

Beautiful job on your cape and lining. It looks great on you.

Your version is really nice. Love the lining, no cape should be unlined, they stick to every thing you wear under it! Nice work.

Another beauty from this pattern - just read Lori V's and remarked that I must get to using mine - your version reinforces that - maybe today!! Will be lining mine also and may copy your idea of acontrasting lovely color

Not too many photos. I loved seeing your capelet in detail. Your addition of the silk lining and little details like the leaf label make your garment fabulously unique. I agree that the pattern designers should just be including a lining is a pattern similar to this or for jackets, in general. You could have another cape in your wardrobe, it seems perfect for your climate and a really good style for you. Ooh, it would be lovely in a brightly colored wool!
