GARMENT DETAILS 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. SIZING Small, medium & large. This pattern can be easily lengthened or shortened and the waist tie buttonholes can be moved to accommodate any waist size. TECHNIQUES USED Sewing straight seams, bound openings (for the waist ties), buttonholes (machine or hand worked) and adding buttons. SUGGESTED FABRICS 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.
