A Christmas Caroling Capelet

Or at least the start of one.  :p  I had to turn this red-checked wool into something adorable and snuggly.  There wasn't much to start with, but I did have just enough to eke out a little capelet, such as I would imagine a Christmas Caroler wearing in the 1890s.  Here is my progress so far:

The trim is flat navy braid, just pinned on.  I'm planning to line it in solid red, and I'm debating if I want to add a collar or not.
