Love - love - love - it TT !! The flat button is for the inside, behind the lower button at the waist line. I sewed it right behind the large front button. It buttons into the buttonhole that is underneath and holds the front overlap sections together at the waist.

Angel-I am SO saving your tutorial to my desktop. Your jacket is (as usual) breathtaking, and sent me on a city-wide search for the Burda issue which i just found. I will follow your steps, but I must say, if an accomplished person such as yourself had issues, I may be in an asylum before I finish. Thank you for your generousity and time.

I've just finish sewing this cape yesterday! You've done a wonderful job on the cape and on this review! I love your version (very similar to mine which is black with plaid front facings and undercollar) Very well done and thanks for this very helpful review!

DoggyGirl said...
Oh my gosh, this is Fan-tab-u-lous!! Your version looks so much better than the Burda picture - they need to replace theirs with yours! I've got to go find this pattern...but I'll be sure to use your instructions instead of Burdas .

Oh I love it!!! I have some grey gabardine on order from Denver Fabrics to make me one and I'm thinking of being a little wild and lining it with an animal print if I can find one that goes. I think it will be my most difficult project to date, but I know I can do it! Thank you for the helpful review and so good to have you back reviewing patterns - you're always such an inspiration to me.

A real stunner! I love this cape, but I keep reading how its a doosy. It's wonderful to see it finished--and so beautifully.

Wow, I think you've created a following here... we ALL want to make it now that you've paved the way and opened our eyes to this pattern's possibilities. OF course you want another one: just think how fab it would be in a plaid (mwahahahahah!). On the bias.
