Modified McCalls 5764 Capelet , I added a lining and used a Frog Closure instead of buttons.
While the pattern itself was easy, I had to re-sew the seams a couple of times to make it lay perfectly. I would also advise adding a snap closure to the collar if you plan on making the stand-up style (I will be adding one later today). All-in-all, I love the versatility of the style – I can see going for an opera style or a military style, or a raincoat, and anything in-between.
