As soon as it was launched I knew I wanted to make a Cypress Cape from Sewaholic. It looks perfect for all of the dog walking I seem to do in terrible weather!

Finally making a start on my #cypresscape from @sewaholic. Knowing me I'll get it done in time for autumn!

On a chance visit to Abakhan in Preston I found some wonderful waterproof woven fabric and got very excited. I then spent an extraordinarily long time deciding which size to make. I eventually cut out the pattern pieces but then out it to one side yet again.

This week, however, was a big step forwards in that I finally bought some waterproof seam tape, although I’m fairly sure I didn’t buy enough! Five metres just doesn’t feel like it’s going to cover all those seams…

#waterproofseamtape I will make my #cypresscape ….eventually

The next mini task in this epic sewing adventure is to make the reflective piping that I want to add into some of the seams. I have a very old completely reflective top that I made (what was I thinking?) which is about to be cut up.

I would say watch this space, but I’m sure you’ve got better things to do than wait for me to get going!
