Child’s Cape Pattern

Capes are so versatile: a nurse, princess or fairy can all share the same one. And they are ever so easy to make!

This is the simple pattern I used to complete Rosalind’s nurse outfit.

    1. For cape: Cut out a rectangle that is 26 inches X the desired length.
    2. For band: Cut out a 16 X 2 1/2 inch rectangle. Iron under 1/2 inch on the short edges of the band and down one long side.
    3. For tie: Cut out two 12 inch pieces of coordinating ribbon.
    4. Iron under 1/2 inch along the sides and bottom of the cape. Fold under again and sew.

    1. Baste 1/2 and 3/4 inches along the top edge of the cape. Gather until it is 15 inches wide.

    1. With right sides together, sew band to cape. Turn out and iron.

  1. Fold the band over the raw edge. Pin ribbon to each side. Sew in place.
