Bah, kids

I sewed a cape for Alastair last night, and he refuses to wear it đŸ˜›

We’re going to the Fairyland Festival at Kings Park today, so Emma is, of course, wearing a fairy dress, but I thought Alastair would like a wizard’s cape. Luckily it was easy to make.

Here’s the pattern I use – I did have a commercial adults’ cape pattern but it was unnecessarily complicated. Excuse my crappy MS Paint skills. Dimensions don’t matter hugely, but the circumference of the curves at the top needs to sit nicely round your shoulders. I used fold-over elastic for the top this time, because it was late and the velour was fighting me.
