Sew Simple Sweater Coat

Knitted Fabric Sooo(sew) Simple to Make

Found this sweater knit in GStreetFabrics 'Treasure Hunt' Room

All seams were Flat Felt sewn including side seam pockets so this could be 'reversible'

Used this style pattern with side seam pockets from a pants pattern I grabbed while cutting it out and extended length 6 inches on view A length (I am 5'2")-cut out long white stripe w/ 1/2" black on each side to sew on edges like double fold bias for edging trim on all sides and bottom-one side was just selvage that was already a white edging ruffling

Looking at this in the pile-my mind went wild..and sooooo soft and cozy

Making a Cape:

Making View A Hooded Cape out of Slicker fabric and Pre lined ski coat Lining Material....  Maybe a detachable fur collar to match my scarf that I already have and fur lined pockets.

Total Process of making the cape:

link to sewing process of cape <---

Just to let you know, I am not soooo on task.   It stopped snowing/raining, so I didn't make the slicker, but it was cold.  I had some leftover stretch suede from a crazy vest I had just made and I made suede Gloves instead, because my hands were cold and I didn't have any gloves.  It has been cold at work, so I decided I didn't want cold hands all day.  Anyway, that is my excuse for changing projects at hand....

After being worn all day, cutting material... LOL

       They match my suede sherpa coat, which I wore part of the day too... and the right hand I cut without the middle fingers so I could cut well and the rest of my hand be warm... Great for driving control too LOL.   I used a satin zigzag stitch so they could be close fitting and move with me...

Glove pattern     Link   Free PDF from 'So Sew Easy'

This took 2 5/8 yards for each side so it would be reversible= at 2.97 a yard.... 7.80 for each side of this cape... essentially 2 raincapes for 15.60.....   Couldn't get that in the store... or could you?
