...this yellow cloak. I love the color combination and fur trim. Given the way the fabric rests around her shoulders, I think it's a capelet, similar to what a men's cloak would feature, and not a typical lady's cloak hood.
The angle of this 1786 Ann Lewis illustration is a good model for draping the capelet. And I love the color combination.
This 1781 cloak features a slightly more dramatic capelet.
But I could just chicken out and make a fur-trimmed hood, like this 1758 cloak shows.
Moving forward, I'd like to make this 1804 oversized muff
someday...which could probably double as a throw pillow.
