This cute, reversible cape pattern is an ideal Winter sewing pattern for kids. It is lined and reversible so all your stitching is hidden inside the cape and no serger is required. I have used Velcro for the tab fastening but you could also use a button or even a sew in press stud. Make it plain and simple or add a fun applique like this little red riding hood.
Cape Pattern Sew Along
This cape pattern comes in kids sizes 2 to 8. Designed to be loose, it comes to the waist so kids can easily use their arms and have fun playing without being restricted.
Supplies and Notions
- Fabric for the main outside of the cape – 1 ¼ yards (1.15m)
- Lining fabric – 1 ¼ yard (1.15m)
- Velcro – 2 inches of 1 inch wide (5cm x 2.5cm)
- A scrap of fusible interfacing for the tab
CAPE PATTERN Fabric Choices
For the outside of the cape, I like to use corduroy, light wool or fleece. Denim in a light or medium weight also looks amazing and is easy to sew. This gives some body to the cape and adds a little warmth. My red cape sample was made using a velvet but admittedly this was much harder to sew than the corduroy and denim samples.
Use a slightly thinner lining to reduce bulk. Quilting cotton works well and is easy to sew.
