Capelet: Update

Like I posted here before (there's the tutorial too), I'm making a capelet from an old sweater from my mum. 
Starting out with this lovely red sweater.

Snippity Snip, and there's the basic shape

Snip to the front to open it up.

This is the bottom which would be good for a cowl if you line it with fleece or something, which I'm also going to do!

And all that's going unused from the sweater. I have an idea for the shoulderpads though, perhaps a footcushions.

Finished the sides with black bubbly fabric, made a tag and sewed on a button as an closure.

Still need to finish the low seam but I'm looking for some black lace. Or do you think I could do the same thing around the bottom as I did on the opening?
