Don’t let superheros have all the fun. It’s time you made yourself into a caped crusader. I recently took my own advice when I spent the day with Elizabeth Holmes, who is quite the DIY queen herself, of The Wall Street Journal. I dreamt up a must-have DIY cape which infused my favorite tartan plaid and the signature silhouette i love. More behind the scenes snaPS with WSJ here!
To create, reach for your favorite cotton flannel or wool material. You will need approx. 2 yards, depending on the size you desire. First, fold material in half, horizontally. Place a hat at the top of the fold (half way down). This will serve as a neck-hole guide. Continue to cut out a 4”inch panel. Don’t throw away the scraps! Use the fabric scraps to create a strip which you can use as your belt. P.S.- add fun brooches, and group in a cluster, for a stunning finishing touch. P.S.- Watch the DIY Video HERE.
