Fun Costume Cape pattern and tutorial, to make from recycled t-shirts, shirts and scrap material. SUITABLE FOR BEGINNER SEWISTS!
The Costume Cape is designed with upcycling a men’s dress shirt and fabric scraps! There is a safe & simple velcro-neck closure and easy-to-wear elastic arm bands. Each wing is decorated with pretty “FEATHER” ruffle layers. Sure to become a favorite dress-up for all! Can be created for either a boy or a girl, simply changing fabric choices.
The Costume Cape can be made to fit babies to adult sizing. Perfect for anyone enjoying a medieval festival…or just trying to flutter around being a fairy. Think about adjusting the colors in a brown color scheme to mimic a wise, old owl or go for a selection of greens and make your favorite fire breathing dragon. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

It is with pleasure to introduce Lydra to Recycled Market.
“Lydra is a Melbourne-based fashion accessories label that is calling upon Grandmas, Grannies, Bubbes, Nonnas and Nans to step forward and become apart of the Lydra family.
This social enterprise will engage with the elderly community to create a cross generational initiative, linking both the younger and older generation through their love of fashion.
Lydra started from a bespoke clutch purse that drew the eye and captured the imagination! All the products are made from pre-loved fabrics, produced and sourced locally, with a strong emphasis on preserving the environment.
Each product is one-of-a-kind, with its own novel name and a description of the garment’s former life. Lydra is fun, fit for all occasions and, most importantly, allows you to be yourself.”
I have a vision for a better world and through through my skills and passion hope to discover this through Fashion. With a background in advertising, I sought a new direction for more altruistic endeavours. I recently completed Applied Fashion Design and Technology at RMIT. With products stocked in 44 shops throughout Australia and competing in the global finals in the USA as the GSEA National Student Entrepreneur for Australia. I envision that through creating Lydra, I will be able to better educate and create awareness about the relevance of sustainable living.
Lydra is an ethical range of womens accessories that makes clutches, handbags and travel wallets from pre-loved materials, locally in Melbourne.
Linda aims to be a pioneer in the global fashion industry, to lead by example and show others in this industry that you can create a business that considers the environment, incorporates the community and creates quality products that last.
