This way a great was to re-use some larger and very pretty jumpers - little capelets.
1. The collar: It's hard to get a neat lined collar with the stretchy jumper. Next time I'll use a contrasting velvet.
2. The lining: The pink capelet (worn by Pepper) has an attached lining which was sewn on the wrong side with a small gap left for turning out. That was very tricky to "fit" - one being stretchy and the other being non stretchy. With the navy blue one, (worn by Wanda) I didn't attach the lining at the bottom hem, but hemmed them separately. Then I will stitch them together (it still has pins in it! Yikes for Wanda!)
I am learning - it's all trial and error - which is a funny phrase because it's completely negative, isn't it? All trial and error. Where's the success and learning??? One thing I have learned - add pom poms. It makes everything better!
