Description

Made more than 2 years ago – Burda Style August 2009, model 111. I made it in wool and added some length to both the coat and cape parts. I usually wear it with a leather belt – not crazy about the fabric belt.
(Sorry about the project duplicates, I’ve deleted the other 2!)

    Nice! Looks good on you. I have always wanted to make this, but didn’t previously have the time. But I was just looking at it with the girls a couple of weeks ago, as we were all deciding which cape we would like to have. So thank you for posting it! It looks like it would be very comfortable for driving a vehicle in?

      Thanks – yes I think this cape is better for driving compare to a regular cape. Although it is less warmer when it’s windy ;-)

      Thanks – you should find the time ;-) I was pleased that it was not too difficult or time consuming to sew – in fact no sleeve to set in!
