Vogue Cape 8959

I love how this cloak turned out, :). I made the Vogue 8959 cape pattern which comes in 3 length options. I went with the medium but instead of only 1 button I made 2. I have just discovered how to sew buttons holes using my machine and believe I have finally managed the easiest way to do it, :).

For this pattern I bought a gorgeous cobalt blue very soft and warm wool blend from Textile Fabrics, a fabric store in Nashville, TN. Then I lined the inside with a fun lime-green flannel plaid purchased from Jo-Ann Fabrics. The beautiful pearl buttons were also purchased from Jo-Ann’s.

The pattern was very easy to follow and put the whole cape together in about 6 hours, cutting only took about 2 hours now that I have my wonderful roll cutter. I had considered making the cape reversals but wasn’t sure how the pattern was set up, after everything was done I discovered it would be very easy to reverse this cape but maybe I’ll make another using the short pattern option. I just used light weight fusible interfacing for the front edges and plan to tack the bottom of the lining in place, though it doesn’t appear to be necessary.

And below are some photos taken from different angles. Overall I am very pleased! 🙂
