WGT- gone batty- Nananananana Batcape!
Sorry, I could not resist! ^^ Another part of the gone batty outfit is the cape with a batwing hem. The weather around white sunday (ie WGT) is unpredictable, I had everything from snow over thunderstorms to 30°C, so I'm carefully planning each outfit for a certain range of temperatures. The cape should keep me warm and dry:
The fabric was black velvet bought in Münster, the lining is thin polylining. The bow for closure will be simple poly satin ribbon Ihave some black stuff but will look for purple ribbon on fabric market this weekend. The hem had to be done by hand because both fabrics are slightly elastic and refused to work together with the sewing machine...
Here is a closeup of the hem, not only did I clip the curves but I cut the excess fabric at the tips to get them more pronounced.
