Simplicity 5669: Tartan Plaid Cape

Added Mar 3, 2011

Cosy winter cape made of plaid wool, lined with flannel-backed polyester lining. I used a vintage Simplicity pattern from 1964, but I think it looks very modern! The great thing about making a cape is that it’s easy to sew! Simple seams, not a lot of fitting required. It’s as comfortable as wearing a wool blanket, but so much more stylish!
I wrote up a tutorial on matching plaids, which is great for any plaid sewing project!

    Nice! I really like the capes here on Burdastyle lately and in yours, the fabric makes it particularly great. I guess I really should consider making one myself…

    I love this so much. The short cape is a trend that I hope will last for a very long time :)
