Drafted from Pattern Magic 3, by Tomoko Nakamichi.
I love the way that when you are wearing it, from the front it just looks like you are wearing a rather ordinary cropped little Tshirt, with maybe just the stripe as its lone interesting feature. However as one turns around, it transpires one is wearing an elegant little draped cape, with a flattering, widely scooped back neckline.
When the garment is laid flat you can see at once the inspiration for its name.
