gracie the vampire - part 3: the jacket
Sorry about the week gap between parts 3 & 4. Sometimes life just happens and last week was one of those weeks! Anyway, I'm back with part 4 today, which is the cape. After all, what's a vampire without a cape! I used the Red Riding Hood pattern from the Little Things to Sew book by Oliver & S. I added 10" to the length and opted to line only the hood. I also omitted the arm openings along the side hem since they made it feel less vampire-ish. Other than that, I followed the pattern. I felt that after the complexity of the dress and coat I needed a simple project that required little thought on my part :) Please excuse the wrinkles in the picture below. I took it after the cape was worn through a rainy and windy trick-or-treating session!
Everything is from Joann's

Frog closure (not shown) by Dritz - I would not recommend this closure as it fell apart after a single use
