DIY Lindsey Thornburg Cape

In the middle of working with lots of lamé, been dreaming of one of these lindsey thornburg capes.

They are priced at $1000 which is way out of my budget, but Pendleton offers the exact same blanket weight fabric by the yard here.

McCall’s has a similar cape pattern.

The Pendleton Fabric would total about $275, plus another$30 for a high quality silk lining, and maybe another $10 for a nice button closure.  I really want to do this, will probably have to wait for some Christmas funds.

    I discovered this cape a couple of days ago, and have been dreaming about it ever since! I love the fact that the hood is combined with a shawl. A simple, black one might last forever. 🙂
