This pattern is for a wonderfully versatile shoulder cape. At 14 inches in length, it is perfect to cover the shoulders, but keep the hands free. This cape can be made out of a warm fabric such as a wool or wool blend and used as an additional layer to keep the evening chill off. When made of fancy fabrics such as velvet, taffeta or satin it makes the perfect accessory to complete a ball gown. The lightweight fabric will provide covering for a low neckline but not crush any trim or embellishments that may be on the ball gown bodice. When made with the same or a companion fabric to a skirt, this simple cape can be used to complete a nice basic-wear outfit. It makes a great wardrobe extender.
This pattern also makes a great Childs’ cape!!!!
