Deconstruct: Blazer to Capelet

I've been obsessed with capes for over a decade. Maybe it's my love of superheroes or my obsession with Shelley Longs  gorgeous Girl Scout inspired cape in "Troop Beverly Hills". Either way my excitement at all the high fashion capes that are coming out this season are getting me so excited for fall. 

I have been wanting a structured cape that can be worn in the office as well as out. I recently purchased this oversized blazer from goodwill because I loved the fabric, but it was just too boxy to wear in it's current shape.

So I decided to deconstruct it into a capelet. Not much needed to be done.

Here's the finished project. Time it took to complete: 45 min.
