The Cape and Hood


How cute is the cape I made for my Patternmaking class? I love how it turned out and I love how it looks. It’s definitely one of my favorite projects for class from last year!

The hood is fully lined and the cape itself has facings as finishing's. I really wish that I would have lined the cape too, but I’m so pleased with how clean I was able to make the facings with a BUNCH of hand sewing. I also used facings for the arm slits!

Now let’s talk fabric! I acquired a bunch of fabric in September (around 20 bolts! And a whole bag of folded fabrics!) and this was one was one of my favorites of the bunch! It was a real struggle and took a lot of effort to lay everything nicely so that I could get this result, but I’m so proud of being able to get the outcome that I desired. Let me know what you think in the comments!
