Description

I used Vogue 6032 to make up this vintage cape. I had a lot of problems because I’m such a novice sewist, but I think it turned out really well! I’m very pleased with the cape and I just love walking around my neighborhood with it. Hopefully it warms up soon so I can wear it more often! More construction details and pictures here.

    This is a great cape! Burda has a pattern that I bought in the store for a cape and it was really easy to make. I don’t have pics. though…It’s this one. I just cut the bottom a bit…http://www.fabric-dreams.co.uk/Ladies/Burda-pattern-cape-size-36-50::225864.html
