Pattern Description: Cape in 3 lengths, I made view A

Pattern Sizing: XS-XL. I made Medium

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I needed to use a striped fabric, so I chose this pattern because it is bias cut and it would highlight the chevron effect of the stripe.

Fabric Used: Cotton. It was brown and white, but I over dyed it with brown.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the shoulders a tensy bit narrower. I lined it so the lining hangs free instead of bagging it. If I made it again, I would make the arm slits an inch lower: where they are now are almost at bust level on me. They're fine on my daughter, though.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. Its super easy to make and fun to wear.

Conclusion: More at my blog: Room for Sewing

This is absolutely beautiful! I love the pattern you chose. Wish I would have thought to make the lining hang free too, very smart.
