This super cute Cape is made out of maroon herringbone wool and lined with red herringbone. It has this great English country-living feel that makes you think of a walk in the woods. A creative transition piece from a light jacket to your big winter coat, this really can be worn in any season depending on your fabric choices.

    This is absolutely amazing. Such a beautiful piece and, you’re right, an instant classic. And I really do not think $4 is over the top for such a great design!

    I like this web site a lot. But if you really think about it the cost of the pattern plus the cost of printing; it ends up being a little pricey. In my case is like 9.40 $ And what it sucks the most if that the instructions are not always clear. To end you can never find details like what amount of fabric or other details like that.

    I just scored some vintage plaid wool, about 2 1/2 yards. I’m trying to decide between the A-Plus A-line and this beauty! Ach, decisions!

    If you add some lining to the cape it would feel warmer

    BurdaStyle, your recent series of wardrobe basics are WONDERFUL. I covet them all. We are coming up to summer here but this cape would be perfect for cool nights.

    I am currently working on a cape, this might help me with mine :)!! really cute. To keep the cape flowy you used silk as the lining, correct? could you use anything else to line it that would still let is lay right?

    This is really nice! I never thought a cape could look this good. The ones I have seen havent been that attractive and put me off them buy I might even wear this one.
