I found this cool&cute style of cape at this Project site, sewn by KATJA, and at her own blog she kindly introduced the original site for the pattern (schnittchen – einfach nähen). I started making my own using small piece of wool mossa. However, when I picked up the pattern, I realized that the size seems rather for stretching materials (or, my size is too big?) because the front zipper closure is too tight for me to move around with this cape on! (I can’t read German well, therefore I must have missed that part of instruction…..)
So I decided to make this one of open front, though lining fully with tropical wool, as you see here.
The result is one mini “reversible” cape!
I had sewn a skirt of same wool mossa (Pattern: No.113, Burda Magazine 7/2008) so together this can also be a rather business-scene set.
Material: Wool mossa (light brown) and Tropical wool (light gray)
Pattern: Elena jacket ( at schnittchen – einfach nähen)
