If you’ve always wanted to sew outwear, but were intimidated by the process, a cape is a great place to start! This quick project is even suitable for beginner sewists. The classic shape of this cape is sewn from a complete circle, so it is nice and full; perfect for twirling!
I’ve included a generous hood to keep your little girl nice and warm. The cape is fully lined, so it is perfect for cool fall days. Fully lined also means no hemming! I choose to close the cape with plastic snaps, but you can also use buttons if you wish.
While this cape is a trendy fall accessory, the pattern will also work perfectly as a costume for your Little Red Riding Hood or other historic dress up. Since capes are quite easy to fit, this pattern is ‘one size fits most’ for girls ages 4-8.
