CELEBRITY INSPIRED :: RALPH LAUREN AUDREY CAPE GOWN






Hi guys! I am sooo excited to share this project with you! I am a huge Lupita Nyong'o fan. I think I actually joined twitter and instagram so I could be current on all things Lupita. She is talented, beautiful and oh so stylish! Ever since Lupita stepped out, or rather floated out, in that gorgeous Ralph Lauren Cape dress at the 2014 Golden Globes, I was hooked. I wanted that dress. However, the $7,000 price tag was a huge obstacle. I was not deterred. Rather, I set out to figure out how to make one of my own.

All in all, I think it turned out great. I am happy that I made my cape detachable too because I don't think "regular" people run around in capes ..lol.


I hope you are inspired to try this project.  I am definitely going to make this again!
