This looks great on you. I normally don't like capes that much but I like your version and it makes me think I should give one a try. Definitely 99!

Very nice cape, I like the slight swing it has in the back, definitely smart, not nannyish.

A very stylish cape, Sue :) Definitely 99 !

Definitely Agent 99! Great cape, might push this up my (very long) to do list of BWOF must-haves!

Definitely not super nanny. (Though if they ever updated Mary Poppins, she would swoon to wear this, and would carry a tiny little parrot headed umbrella in an inside pocket). But Agent 99 wouldn't let her wear it. Beautiful.

What a chic cape! I have fabric for this, but am waiting for it to warm out. I'm going to have to wish for spring harder now that you've shown this!

I am so happy to see that made. I have been wanting to make that. It is very pretty on you.

Wow! I love this cape. Definitely Agent 99-- though if you're the Super Nanny, you get to tell people, 'You've been very, very naughty...' -- which would be fun. Thanks for making this one and letting us see it!

Definitely Agent 99! You look smashing!

Wow, I really love this! Not nanny at all, very sophisticated!

Yep! Agent 99. She was always so stylish. And Sue, do you think you could slow down a bit. You're sewing like the wind this month and putting the rest of us to shame.

sherril... I'm tired of tripping over fabric and need to get rid of it.... so I can buy more!

I've finished mine but haven't had time to review. Did you line it? I lined mine but had problems cutting out the facing and side pieces. Thanks for getting it out for all of us to see in such a nice colour. I'd said not nanny and too feminine in brown for agent 99, but definitely "Foreign Office" on assignment.

inkstain: I like that: foreign office on assignment.... I think I need a matching cap

Who knew you needed a cape? But now that you have it, I'm sure it will become part of your wardrobe for your secret agent assignment.....or as an extra layer if you go somewhere cold. Nice looking garment thanks for the review.

Agent 99, no question. Now, how does it become Agent Ari, who loves capes and cloaks with an almost unholy passion? The 99-ness comes from the short shape- no elves will try to hump your leg- and the sharp buttons- and no rumply seamlines- it seems like nannies things never quite fit right. And, you look great. So, totally, you, Anne Hathaway, the original- ya'll could go get drinks together at a suave boite.
