Gosh, I almost forgot to check in on this review!! So glad I didn't! A rain cape...what a fabulous idea (that I must copy)! :) I love the details of this piece...even a simple piece from you is an admirable piece of work. Thanks for the inspiration! Love those ginormous buttons, btw.

This is OUTSTANDING! I love the style, (Super Chic) the color is fabulous, and the fabric is so unique! Lucky Sister!

Marji: do you want to adopt another sister? I LOVE your version of the cape: fabulous fabric choice: striking in every way. Lucky sister.

This is just the prettiest rain cape that I have seen..what a great color for a rainy day. Your point about not using/needing the armhole slits is well taken. I love the cape buttoned up....your sister is very fortunate to have you and I can tell that you love her! Beautiful work, Marji, but you had best get some rest as you have been sewing up a storm lately!

Awesome outcome. I am rethinking my relationship with capes... this looks like a fun project. Beautiful job and you must be a very dear sister to your family.

Striking looking. Excellent idea with the backing button and the corded buttonhole. Your sis is one lucky lady.

That is lovely. Nice solution to your DSis' outerwear problem.

I'm not a "cape" person, & in Canada our winters are very cold, so obviously a warmer fabric would have to be used, however, your details & excellent pictures will lead me to getting this pattern. Many thanks for the clear directions on a corded buttonhole, another tip I'll use. Super job!

Great pairing of fabric and pattern! And the color will brighten any rainy day.

Beautiful cape and I like the part that arm slits aren't required. I, too, think they would be cumbersome. I think this would also be nice as a "regular" cape, too, especially with slacks. Great job!

Thanks for this very good review! It looks very complete to me! It's timely for me as I have this pattern and am hoping to have it done for Fall...ever the optimist.

Gorgeous color - a perfect item for a rainy day. Hope your sister loves it -it's a great cape!

The is just awesome, Marji! I lurve it! What a fantastic idea to use this pattern for rainwear. Lucky sister. BTW, this is a great review and I suspect that the "needs more info" button got hit by accident. I've had to catch myself a few times as it's right next to the "very helpful" button.

Very cute! This looks like a perfect project for when you want to sew up a new jacket but don't feel like messing with the hassle of fitting one!

A great idea for a lt. rain cape. Makes me think my sis that I sew for across country might like one for that type of day for her. Hope my JoAnns has some similar fabric.

Great cape- I'm sure your sister will love it. How funny- I pulled this pattern out last week and decided it was going to be my next project! Good timing Marji!
