San Diego, Calif...
I have been “cape crazy” for quite a while, searching in stores and online for inspiration. I even had a special folder on my computer for cape-only pictures. But when I saw Simplicity 2285 pattern, I knew my search was over.
Pockets are the most interesting detail in this cape. They are some kind of the patch pockets but sewn on the inside of the garment. Pocket openings are combined with the hand openings. Pattern called for no lining but I added it anyway.
Wool fabric, lining, 6 buttons
