I have a love for Victorian fashion, and I think it would be great to bring back a few fashion accessories from the time in a new way. There were my fleece legwarmer spats last winter, and I’ve been making a bunch of faux fur muffs lately (I’ll try to write something up about them soon), but today I’d like to share my little wool capelet I made.
It has a nice big hood lined in black faux fur, and a big double box pleat in the center back.
The front has topstitched princess seams and closes with a cute vintage style button.
I added a pretty cord braid around the hood for a special little accent.
So what do you think? I’m hoping it’s a piece that has a Victorian feel, but can fit well into a modern wardrobe. I know I like it, and I think I’ll go ahead and buy up some of the lovely wool I’ve been eyeing at the fabric shops this fall to make a few more.
