ReDpants hit the RED carpet last night at the 2nd night of Houston Fashion Week. Fashion Houston is celebrating it’s fifth year running (this is my 4th year attending…missed 2012). Last night I wore my DIY Snake Print Capelet.
I made the capelet using Vogue DKNY pattern (V1322). I followed the pattern with everything except the button. I added a fabric covered snap instead.
I had actually been stalking this fabric for a while before buying it (not sure why it took me so long…I was just thankful that it was there when I needed it…). The fabric was purchased locally at High Fashion Fabrics. The fabric is a cotton tweed and I purchased 4 yards at about $24.00/yard. The lining is a light blue bemberg lining.
