have fallen in love with this cape, but cant decide if i'd look like a dumpy hobbit, or if the lack of sleeve would drive me mad, anyone have anything like this how do you get on with it

:giggle: :giggle: lol at the dumpty hobbit, I need to be careful of that with my not very tall stature and large derrière!

I think the lack of sleeves would drive me mad - and I'd get cold!

@girlinleeds I think that's lovely! You'd have to try it out re the sleeves, that would annoy me I think. I'd order it and then try it on. I personally wouldn't worry about the whole dumpy thing but I'm 5"8' so don't often look dumpy.... Fat, yes, but not dumpy!

i stretch to 5ft1 so often look like a weeble, have ordered it as if i didnt i know i'd regret it and can always send it back. am kind of wondering how im going to manage a bag as normally wear a shoulder/across body bag wonder if i might have to buy a new bag to go with the coat :giggle:

@clothmama @clothsister. It's arrived and I love it, am surprised how warm it is but there's room for Layers under it anyway. It's not something I'd normally consider but I'm in love. Think I'm going to find a pattern for some long wrist warmers and I could actually wear my across body bag under it, excuse the dodgy pic but it's really hard to show it Image

That looks so cosy :) I like it.
I hat Le having sleeves on most of the time so it would probably be one for me.
