The cape that she is wearing was a last minute pattern. It was an alteration to the Wandering Waif Cape. And it can be reversed. I recommend using a limp material. Not stiff. If you use a stiff material take about 5" out of the middle back of the pattern. Again, not recommended.

I used a very stiff material for this cape and it turned out to be quite problematic. I also slightly changed the sleeve holes in jpg pattern I posted. The new way works much better.

This cape is for a 2T.

    This is so cute!! I think sewing it in adult size would have an equally charming effect!
