Lydia's Cape

I started working on a dressy cape for Lydia a few months ago, but I never finished it.  I finally got around to working on it today, and Lydia is thrilled:

 I'm not satisfied with the hood, but the cape turned out great.  It's made of black velour on the outside, and the inside is some cotton I had on hand.  It's very full and heavy, so it will keep her warm on the way to church on cold days.

When I was a kid, I loved wearing the crocheted capes over my dresses.  I can't crochet any more (carpal tunnel), but I can sew, so I thought this would make a nice winter cape.  It's plenty long, too, so she could even grow a few inches.  Or not.
