Living in the DMV area we have sporatic weather changes! One day its 90 the next day it could be 40! However, a cape is a good cover-up for going out, or if you are shopping in the mall. Its easy to throw over your outfit for warmth and still leaves one very stylish. I admired a Red cape that someone else blogged about and I was going to use a different pattern, however when I saw this pattern McCalls 6209 I knew I had to create it. Then when I saw the fabric in Metro Textiles I knew exactly what I would create.. if fact I have enough fabric left over for a beautiful pencil skirt!
