As I am narrating the journey I needed something to wear - this is what was requested: A full length velvet cape.
I added the sequins around the hood rather than fur because I think it will feel more magical in the lights. (Also the red crushed velvet kind of lends itself to looking a little from the 'dark side' if you know what I mean and I thought the sequins might counteract that!)
It's unhemmed but as I don't plan on wearing it daily I think I'll get away with it. I used a very ugly Simplicity costume pattern but made it full length and took a lot of the width out of it.
Joining in tomorrow with lovely crafty types here:
I have asked for a sworn promise that the air conditioning in the building will be set to freezing - just so as I can survive the evening.
love you more than a row of sequins xxxx
