Cape, skirt and trouser ensemble.

I’m putting together a couple of outfits, matching separates mostly, to wear over the cooler months.  I’m getting a lot of use out of a pair of trousers I made using this pant pattern (sorry no photos yet..):

I thought I ought to make a couple more pairs of pants, get a bit colourful even!

So here’s the plan, make up this cape (it’s cut and ready to start)..

And this skirt from this sweet suit – I might make the suit top if I really get into the matching separates thing.

My fabric is a delicious red wool crepe, quite light weight with a nice drape to it, so I think it’s just right for the cape, and will also work nicely for a slim skirt and the trousers.  Not too heavy, so it should be perfect for autumn.  I also have a great stash of lining I was given, red and pink to use for this project.
