gracie the vampire - part 4: the cape

In case you missed it ... 
gracie the vampire - part 1: the dress
gracie the vampire - part 2: the slip
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
Flannel backed satin
Frog closure (not shown) by Dritz - I would not recommend this closure as it fell apart after a single use
