Description

I finally used my sewing machine for something other than hemming pants.
A Halloween costume was an excellent place for me to start because I wasn’t so concerned with the quality of the sewing as I was just diving in and trying to learn something. I created a simple pattern so that my cousin and I could cut out the fabric together over a glass of wine without much thought. I then took the pieces and sewed them into flower petal capes my cousin and I wore to dress up as flowers.

Material Notes

I used 2 layers of material for each petal. Both stiff fabrics. One was a raw silk and the other was taffeta….I think. We cut out heart shaped “petals” in various sizes from the pattern I made. I then sewed the corresponding layers together and used some elastic to gather the ends together for some extra volume. These were sewn to a grosgrain ribbon to create the cape. We wore these over dresses with green tights and brown shoes to finish the look.
