Pattern Description:

CHICKEN HILL shares the pretty "WINGSofaBIRDIE" recycled COSTUME CAPE Pattern & Tutorial. A great design to show off some of your favorite outgrown, stained, or unused shirts and/or skirts. Comfortable to wear for hours of fun play.

The "WINGSofaBIRDIE" Costume Cape is designed with upcycling a men's dress shirt and fabric scraps! There is a safe & simple velcro-neck closure and easy-to-wear elastic arm bands. Each wing is decorated with pretty "FEATHER" ruffle layers. Sure to become a favorite dress-up for all! Can be created for either a boy or a girl, simply changing fabric choices.

The "WINGSofaBIRDIE" Costume Cape can be made to fit babies to adult sizing. Perfect for anyone enjoying a medieval festival...or just trying to flutter around being a fairy. Think about adjusting the colors in a brown color scheme to mimic a wise, old owl or go for a selection of greens and make your favorite fire breathing dragon. The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!

This EASY-TO-SEW pattern features color photographs and step by step SIMPLE Tutorial instructions. This would be a great beginning Sewist project!

I've also included directions for those that have a serger (optional). Remember, you DO NOT have to have a serger to make this costume cape!!!
