Tutorial: Blair Waldorf Capelet!

I was particularly inspired by this photo of her in the cutest capelet ever. Obviously, I had to make my own..... While this is not a no-sew project, like my last cape, it's almost as easy!

1) I started with a long rectangle of delicious fabric (that my mom got for $.75 at a thrift store!) 2) Then I pleated the top. 9 pleats, aprox. 2.5" each, and right up against each other, leaving about 5" on each side. 3) I sewed a basting stitch along the top of the pleats, to hold them together.... 4) Then I trimmed the two front edges to make them curved. 5) Measure from one end of the cape to the other (minus the top), and cut the length of ribbon you need. 6) Sandwich the edge of the cape in the middle of the ribbon, and pin well. 7) Sew the ribbon on. 10) Hand stitch them on.
