DIY Cape

  Before:





After:





 Cape: Thrifted, Shirt, Necklace and tights: Aerie, Belt: Aerie, Skirt: H&M, Boots: Urban nog

I found this brand new poncho (tags still attached!) at the thrift store. I've been searching for a cute knit cape for a little while and when I saw this.. I hoped that my crazy idea would work they don't always. I cut right now the front and then whip knit(?)/stitched it with black yarn to keep it from fraying. I think I will add buttons to make it even more cape-like.

What do you think? What have you refashioned lately?
