Sewing Clothes: The Bibury Capelet Project

I bought this epattern by Jamie Christina at PHAT Fabrics.
I love how it turned out.

I made it with stretch cotton poplin in deep blue, with a tiny flowered fabric interior. It has hook and eye closure, the buttons are optional. What do you think?

I planned on an outdoor photo shoot, but the English weather did not abide.

My husband made me post this pic. I hate how I look without mascara, but he likes me better that way. Ugh.

Do you like my Anthropology-inspired rosette headband?
 I made a bunch...

 I made those earrings...they never did sell on Etsy, so I'm keeping 'em. :o)

I love frayed edges. Semi-messy, Lived In, pretty...

Peace Out


  1. Oh my goodness! You look amazing! You did such a wonderful job with the capelet. I haven't tried cotton poplin, but now I think I will. The headband looks adorable with the capelet. I love the black and white one. Thanks for sharing! I hope you add your capelet pics to my flickr group at http://www.flickr.com/groups/prettyditty/

  2. Very cute - as always! I think your red sparkly shoes should make more appearances other than halloween :)

  3. I was so proud of my stupid bag I made and but now I feel very amature! That capelet (new word for me) is so gorgeous! I am with your hubby... I love that pic of you! Very chic!
