P.S. I Made This Shows Us How To DIY A Camel Cape



Erica Domesek from P.S. I Made This (whose huge craft bible of a book just came out—buy here!) showed us how she makes this comfy DIY cape that's incorporated two of the season's biggest trends—camel-colored outwear and the essential cape! We suggest to get creative with buttons, and the fabric type and pattern, too—cinch it with a belt, fasten a statement brooch, or just go simple and wear it with a pair of slim-fit trousers. The steps, below!.
