Have you noticed a resurgence of capes in outerwear fashion? We think they are awfully sweet on little girls.
I recently had a chance to pattern test the new Go To Cape.
I knew the reality was I would be sewing for the Spring- we got smacked with a foot of snow a couple days after I took this picture. But for those of you with more mild winters, or currently enjoying your summer weather this is a great option!
I made Miss M’s out of corduroy and lined it in flannel. I like the body it gives. However my machine had a bit of a seizure while I was trying to get the button holes in. I seriously may not yet be ready to talk about it- and this was a couple weeks ago.
I ripped out more buttonholes than I even want to think about.
It’s a pretty full cape and has a large hood. She was not game for putting it on, I’m hoping she’ll be more into in the spring.
This pattern is listed as a beginner/adventurous beginner. I would lean to the adventurous beginner, but it may have just been my sewing mood that day.
