Floral Coral Frocktails Cape
by Gabrielle Follow

I made this cape to wear to Frocktails in Melbourne over my frocktails dress. The cape is made using a vintage pattern from the late 60s, Vogue 7231, and a beautiful woven viscose from Tessuti Fabrics. It's a simple garment, but took quite a bit of planning as I wanted to get the flowers from my border print fabric to look "balanced" around the cape and to look as though they were growing up relatively straight from the curved hemline. I'm delighted with how it's turned out, and had a ball wearing it. Loads more words and pictures here on my blog if you're interested. Thanks, Gabrielle
