Not a full size cape but not a jacket either, this Woodland Stroll Cape was inspired by a vintage cape that Liesl Gibson admires.  She says it's a quick and easy garment to sew and highlights a piece of wool or velveteen beautifully.  Its shape eliminates a lot of difficult fitting issues.

Liesl made it for herself in two fabrics: a wool plaid to wear with jeans for running errands on the weekends and a dark and serious fabric for business attire.  It's very versatile!  You can even dress it up for evening wear.  Surprise everyone with a flashy lining! Liesl says "Bemberg rayon is ideal because it’s easy to work with and it allows the cape to flow over the garment worn underneath."

Suggested Fabrics: 

CAPE: Wool coating, wool melton, velveteen (cotton velvet), moleskin, or corduroy.  LINING: Rayon, acetate, polyester, China silk, or cotton lawn. (Note: slippery linings work well for this pattern.)

How about making the cape in these fabrics from the Cloth Merchants...

Here's a pint-sized version of the adult cape, and so cute too!  It's fully lined and with snaps or buttons at the sides and the front, it's an easy piece for youngsters to put on and take off. 

Think of all the great fabrics you can sew this up with! Sew matching child and adult capes for that special outing!

The construction method is the same as for the adult cape.

Suggested Fabrics:

CAPE: Wool coating, wool melton, velveteen (cotton velvet), moleskin, or corduroy.  LINING: Rayon, acetate, polyester, China silk, or cotton lawn. (Note: slippery linings work well for this pattern.)

Looks very like the New york Cape without a hood. Pity, otherwise I'd get it, I like her patterns

I am totally making this for my 2 year old!

I love this cape because it is flattering and not overpowering! Some of the poncho and cape patterns take so much fabric, therefore I have avoided them.

Cloth Merchants' link is fixed now. Sorry!

I also love the cape and may give it a try. The link to Cloth Merchants isn't working - it says "I'm forbidden" access.

I've only tried one Oliver & S pattern but I was very impressed and loved the detailed instructions. The cape might be just the thing for me to cut into that asymmetrical Pendleton plaid!
