The story line, the script, the writers...disappointing.
I wasn't thrilled with the music either...but.
I loved the costumes!
And frankly, Anna's costume is the most magnificent!
So, if you haven't already made yourself a cape,
you've got time to sew one up for Halloween!
This one took me 2 hours.
Or...make one for Christmas...great gift idea too!
We used 3 yards of hot pink fabric
2 yards of purple pom pom trim
2 yards of purple ric rac
Silver cloak clasp
needle and embroidery floss
strip of webbing for stiffening collar
I didn't take as many pictures as I should have.
But here goes.
The material I used was very stretchy...which made sewing it a little difficult,
but made it hang and drape really pretty!
For the long part of the cape, I cut a square piece 60" by 60"
and folded over the top and hemmed it twice in rows.
Very much like this GOLD CAPE I did last year.
This is the PERFECT way to gather material evenly.
Ended up cutting off about 6 inches off the bottom too.
Make it fit your height.
Now set that long cape aside.
I cut an almost donut like shape.
It's a little longer on the sides because it has to go down over the shoulders.
12 inches on the front and back with about 18 inches on the sides.
All rounded up to the front where the collar will attach.
The center circle is 6 inches in diameter.
This fabric was SO stretchy that I had to gather it in a little or
it would stretch and pull too much!
(just a mild frustration)
the seams from sewing on the pompom trim.
I used a little bit of white webbing for added stiffness for this stretchy fabric.
Depending on what material you use, this might not be necessary.
to the short pom pom trimmed capelet...
to the collar!
In the process, I broke the needle of the machine and got flustered and
didn't take any more detailed pictures!
But...PIN it in place.
Try it on with the pins and see if that works.
Then you just have to sew it together.
But the sparkly pink material is so pretty!
(any tips on sewing stretchy material???)
Next I used hot pink embroidery floss and sewed on the adorable clasp!
I need to make another one now!
You probably know how much we love capes!
