the capelet

28Feb09

here’s a silk capelet i made last week:

it is made with ivory hammered silk. i had a lot of fun making it. i did a narrow rolled hem on the tulle trim before i pleated it all by hand. i made the binding myself and i made the thread loop on the closure. most of these techniques i hadn’t done since my advanced couture sewing class, which was a few years ago. i purchased that button a few years ago and had been waiting to use on the right project. it is a beaded vintage button from the 1920’s. there’s more info at my etsy shop, if you’re interested!
