From Sew Over It:

The Chic Cape is an elegant, stylish and oh-so cosy cover-up, perfect for Autumn and Winter.

With a nod to French elegance, it’s something you can throw on over any outfit and feel instantly put-together. And it’ll pair so perfectly with your favourite pom pom hat!

The Chic Cape is fully lined and features armhole slits between the front and side seams. It has a pretty rounded collar and closes at the front with press studs (disguised with self-covered buttons! That’s right, no buttonholes!). Because the cape is completely lined there is no need for any seam finishes, which makes this a perfect project if you don’t have an overlocker.
