This pattern is based on the <a href= “http://old.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3639”>Cape Dracula pattern from the old BurdaStyle site and is the third project in my Make it Work challenge where I plan on sewing one new garment for myself each week.
(If you were not a member prior to the changes and want the pattern please let me know and I would be happy to email it to you)
It is honestly a dream pattern to make up, as I progressed along each step I became more and more pleased with how it was turning out. I made very few modifications to the pattern, for once the shoulder length was perfect for me (normally they are too long by at least 1-1.5cm) but I did add a little at the side seams so that I could wear it over my bulky cardigans without feeling it looked like it was too small for me. I omitted the darts because, well to be honest I was just feeling lazy and wanted to get it made up quickly, after a quick try on I was happy enough without the additional shaping.
I am so happy with it that I already have plans to make a few <a href= “http://utbwb.blogspot.com/2010/05/make-it-work-project-three-superhero.html”>modifications and whip up another.
