I'm wearing a Cape I made using New Look 6227 pattern. I've seen a lot of capes about and really love the look.
I used a fabulous (albeit hard to sew) wool blend plaid I picked up at The Remnant Warehouse which is MY happiest place on earth (sadly it's almost 2 hours away, but worth the drive!).
I found the fabric hard to sew as it has a loose weave which stretched slightly while cutting and sewing. Now I know there are lots of professional type methods to prevent these issues... however I frantically do my cutting and sewing during nap time so I don't have little "helpers". Mama problems.
Matching the plaid (or trying to) made me break out in a cold sweat, but that said I'm happy with how it turned out. It's a great piece as it keeps you warm, but is not as heavy as a jacket. And it just feels fancier!
