So, due to absolutely foul weather I didn't want to leave the house this weekend. I did, however have this little cape pattern I wanted to make, and surely I had some suitable fabric in stash.

Alas, no, it requires a bit over 3m and I have 2.5, in several different fabrics... It's turned out a bit mod, really. It's not finished yet - needs some big black buttons as well as hemming and finishing inside.

The only thing I don't like about this pattern is that it is unlined. Wellington being what it it is, a layer of lining provides an invaluable layer of windproofing.

Yes, Indeed

I agree with Bill, this looks good. I also agree with you; I acquired when younger a full length, full circle cloak (part of my medieval re-enactment garb) which felt plenty warm when I was younger. As I got a bit more... mileage... and in a wind I decided that cloak proved a bit permeable. It is lined now. Much nicer.
