Easiest Cape Ever to Make
If you want an easy, quick, cape for your little girls then this is it. I found a pattern for a full skirt (like the ones worn in the 50's) and cut out front and back pieces of it. Then I put both together and sewed them up. The neck part of this cape is actually the waist of the skirt. This was the 50's pattern for little girls and I used the woman's skirt pattern for the older girls. Then I just sewed some bias tape for the tie. The fabric I use for these are just flannel sheets found at a thrift store. You could leave a small opening on each side of the seams if your daughter would prefer her hands out. Here we dressed my little one up so she could model it!!
