Little Blue Cape

Have you ever wanted to make your own cape? I hadn’t until recently. Now I love the idea of a cape, it makes you feel a little bit like red riding hood. It was ok for red riding hood to wear one as she didn’t have to drive a car whilst wearing her cape.

I decided my cape need a hood (not on the pattern) so I drafted one off one of my hoodies and lined it in vintage fabric. I feel like my cape is perfect for wondering about the woods. I love my hooded patterned cape, it’s defiantly a cape designed for comfort, just not driving cars. Have no cape fear when making your very own cape, they are are as simple to make as a jacket but with out all the fuss of the sleeves

I used Burda Young Pattern 7313 as the base to this project.
