When I was surfing during the holidays for sewing tutorials, I came across the blog, Lia's Crafty Journey and this tutorial. After making the gift bags, I felt like I could do just about anything.
And I did!
I made this cape with some fantastic fabric I found on sale at JoAnn's before Christmas. I have enough left over to make a dress with a short skirt or a skirt with an above the knee length. I am pretty happy with the results.
The sleeves hit just below the elbow, which is perfect, I am glad I added a bit of length.
You can adjust the cape using the buttons, it has endless possibilities.
I would sat all in it took me an hour and a half, but I never to work straight through on these projects, so I have been 15 minutes here and there.
Lia's down-under so her pattern is in metric measurements, but you can adjust to Imperial measurements or JoAnn's can cut in metrics if you ask. I have both sets of rulers and just worked in metrics.
