Reversible Cape (inspired by Panda Bear Hug Cape!)

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 Notes

Material: Wool mossa (light brown) and Tropical wool (light gray)
Pattern: Elena jacket ( at schnittchen – einfach nähen)

    It looks so cute! Would you tell us on which website you found the tutorial? (I think you meant to put a link but somehow it didn’t work…) THanks :)

      Hi, the site is http://www.schnittchen.com/shop/, and you can search for the pattern, using “Jäckchen Elena”.

      By the way, when I was looking for the pattern, I was thinking of mini cape and bolero, and I really wondered whether I should choose your “Comme un Coquelicot” , but at last I realized the fabric is too small (haha, it was just W150cm x L80cm!)
      Hope you like the pattern.

    Nice cape! Judging from your location (Japan) and the origin of the pattern (Germany) I guess, if it is small on you, it was either meant for stretch fabrics or maybe even for children’s sizing because, judging from the resources I have (German sewing magazines and Japanese pattern making books) average women’s sizing in Germany runs quite a bit bigger than in Japan. Not that any of that takes away from the great style of your creation, of course ;)
