I was glad that Sewyourview over on Instagram picked this pattern for the #sewyourview for the November pattern. There is a monthly pattern pick, so check them out over on Instagram. So many great versions of all patterns selected.
I picked this fabric for this cape, as I was undecided on two other options and I was glad I went with this one. This fabric was purchased at Joann Fabrics here. It’s a Perfectly Plaid Acrylic fabric that had just the right amount of design for it not to be plain. I paired it again with my favorite white leggings, I need a new pair of jeans, LOL!!! Jeans are on my list of makes so let’s see what I can come up with next.
I cut the medium on this one, but usually I would have cut a small, but I wanted it to have flow to it. It flows perfectly. I had no issues with this cape, the only issue was getting photos of myself in the cape. It finally worked out.
Although these photos have the top of my head slightly cut off, they were the best one’s I could get before my foot surgery, which I am currently recovering from as I write this post. I love that I was able to get some close ups of the cape and lots of me smiling, It’s hard to catch me in a photo with a smile, but I am working on that too. I am a pretty happy person, but rarely smile in photos. I think it makes my face look chubby.
Pattern Description: Misses’ Hooded, Collared or Collarless Capes
Pattern Sizing: xs-xxl
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that the instructions were easy to follow and it turned out how the envelope looked.
Fabric Used: Perfectly Plaid Acrylic fabric
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None on this one. I did cut the Medium, usually I would cut a small, but I wanted more flow in the body of the cape.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would sew this again, in a solid color, like a bold blue or a hot red.
Conclusion: I love this cape and it will last me all throughout and I can dress it up or down.
Bye for now, time to go Sew Something!!!
