A simple, easy to sew cape that is pulled over the head featuring a two button fastening at the shoulder and a belt tied at the waist.
Small, medium & large.
This pattern can be easily lengthened or shortened and the waist tie buttonholes can be moved to accommodate any waist size.
Sewing straight seams, bound openings (for the waist ties), buttonholes (machine or hand worked) and adding buttons.
Heavy weight fabrics with some drape. As the hem is unfinished we recommend
felted wool. Non felted wools can be used but may require the hem to be finished in a way that will stop fraying.
Matching thread, 2x 2cm buttons, 20cm fusible interfacing suitable for your fabric.
Scissors, measuring tape, pins, sewing machine with buttonhole attachment, iron.
