Notes With three teenage daughters attending formals and University Balls an elegant, evening cover up was required.

I purchased this camel coloured cashmere for myself but stored it incorrectly and silver fish had nibbled the folds. :(

I was able to cut this cape, avoiding the damage.

I lined the vest with a heavy Duchess satin in a pearly pink.

The garment is topstitched and has mock tortoiseshell buttons for a 'Burberry' look.

I bagged the lining through a side seam

The nature of this garment means it fits ALL my big girls and even ME!

    Well done salvaging your fabric (how awful to discover the damage!) This drapes beautifully.
    An excellent style to fit everyone - which means this should be enjoyed by you all. Very pleased for you!
