I found this violet tweed boucle wool fabric and loved it. This is the second hooded capelet that I have made from this violet fabric. This one has pockets, button and hook & eye closure too.
To make the skirt I used a pencil tweed skirt that fits me perfect and used that as a pattern.
I kept the selvages at the bottom of the skirt and stitched above because I like the darker contrast.
This is the hood.
The hood is warm for our cold Vancouver nights!
