Finally finished just in time for attending a wedding. For those of you who haven't been following all of the dying steps, this is a recycled white polyester satin skirt from a wedding dress. I made up the pattern to fit the pieces of fabric. Because of the sheen to the fabric, the look of the color changes with the light.
I think this is the closest to the real color of the cape.
Cape Side View
I made small piping to go around these buttons. As you can see, this cape is heavily quilted with a pattern that flows vertically. I thought that would help with the drape.
I finished the neck by making darts to take in the neck and add more girth to the cape at the shoulders. I then folded some of that quilted fabric over, put in some temporary stay stitches, then quilted from the front to hold things in place. I did not want a 'ring around the neck', but rather a flow. This formed a slight ruffle around the neck. I'm very happy with the results. Not sure I ever want to make something this complicated to finish again. I faced the edges, then added a lining. LOTS of hand work. I do love the dye process. Tedious, but fun results.
