Pattern Description:

This stylish double-breasted cape has a large hood which drapes wonderfully around the head and gives the cape a romantic and fairytale-like appearance. This cape will keep you warm and comfy, while looking like a diva. It can be combined with a variety of outfits " cute dresses, pencil skirts or skinny jeans and high heels.

The simple cut of the cape is the secret of its graceful lines and incredibly chic look.

Depending on the choice of fabric it can be worn as a cardigan or coat.

The simple cut also allows for a range of variations. You can remove the hood, add buttonholes or arm slits, alter the hemline and play around with different fabrics and patterns.

This pattern has been made for you in a lovingly detailed manner. It includes hand illustrated step-by-step instructions, cutting layouts, information about notions, fabric requirement and directions on printing & assembling the PDF pattern.

This pattern originally used to be a Pay As You Wish pattern. If you do not wish to buy it for the recommended price of $4, but rather want to set the pattern price yourself, you can still download the pattern from my blog and donate whatever amount you feel is appropiate.

Happy Sewing! xx
