I found this gorgeous top quality stretch velvet recently and knew it would make special capes.
The purple pile rises from a cerise base, which gives a shot purple/pink look, especially in the sunlight. The base colour also shows as a contrast lining which is glimpsed in the hood and when the cape moves.
As they are both rich, deep colours the cape is gender neutral. Perfect for royal, magical and glamorous fantasy characters.
The number of capes I can make like this is limited by the fabric availability, so now is the time to buy.
