This is the pattern she chose. She'd already picked up a Thrift Store formal (needs a little work...) that we'll dress up with the cape, muff & hat. The gown is what you might call aubergine in color -- not quite purple, yet not burgundy...
I love the detailing on the back of the cape!
We're planning on black braid & tassels; because we found the perfect black & aubergine houndstooth today! It is a wool blend.
We will use a black lining. STAY TUNED! (I might have the muff finished tomorrow!)
