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!
