One of my favorite DIYs from the summer was the Diana Ross inspired sequin beach cover up. With a quick fabric change the beach cover up is transformed into a fabulous Fall cape! It also makes a great gift for that fashion forward lady on your list…
Materials: 1 yard of Houndstooth fabric, 2 yards of leather trim, scissors
Fold your fabric in half. Then cut a “V” shape at the fold for your head to fit through. On the same front panel cut 2 slits in the middle of the fabric about a foot apart from each other. These slits will become the belt loops. Leave the back panel completely whole.
Loop the leather trim through the two belt slits in the front panel. Wrap the trim around your waist and back through the loops. 2 yards of trim should be enough to wrap the belt around you twice. Leave the back panel complete free. It’s officially become your superwoman cape!
It’s amazing what a yard of fabric can become! Even though I live in Los Angeles and it doesn’t get as cold in SoCal as it does in other parts of the country, I’m always excited about the season change. A change in weather means a change in wardrobe! I’m curious…
