I passed up the pants that night and took the kids to see Santa Clause. On the way home I couldn't stop thinking, a cape! Abby would look so cute in a cape. I went to bed, but the siren pants still called. The next week I drove back to the antique store and took the pants off the wall. Did they smell bad? No. Were they vintage? Definitely not. I went to the register, presented the cash, and drive home with my cape-pants that day.
They hung in the closet for a year.
Now it's Christmas. The tree is decorated. Abby's blue Christmas dress is ready for parties and only one thing was missing until now. A Christmas Cape.
Today I am thrilled to be guest posting about my Peter-Pan Collared Cape over at Clever Charlotte, as part of The Collar Project! I was encouraged to design-my-heart-out using their detachable peter-pan collar as a jumping off point. Boy, did I have a lot of fun!
Head over there for more pictures of the cape, a tutorial for how to make one yourself, AND a free pattern. Seriously, did Christmas just arrive early??
I would love to know what you think of the cape. Are you as in love with it as I am? Does your little girl need a Christmas cape? (Yes, she definitely does!). Thanks for visiting, friends. This is such a wonderful time of year!
