Convert a Pattern: How to Use a Circle Skirt Pattern and Make it into a Cape

See how you can use a circle skirt sewing pattern and turn it into a trendy cape.

Turn a circle skirt pattern like the one used to make this pretty skirt into a trendy cape.

See how you can use a circle skirt sewing pattern and turn it into a trendy cape.

 
Fashionable capes are for the super heroes in all of us! They are quick and easy to make and are figure-friendly when hemmed to right length. They can be sporty, dressy, casual, elegant, or even have a military influence look to them depending on the fabric used. If you have a circle skirt pattern you can turn it into a trendy cape with little effort. Since I am showing a "Sherlock Holmes" inspired collection this fall in our annual fashion show, my line must have a cape in it! Here is how I turned the circle skirt pattern into a stylish lined cape.
 

 

 

Make sure that your circle skirt pattern piece reads Cut One On Fold. As if you were pinning and cutting out a circle skirt, do the same with the fabric you would like your cape to be. Because this is for a "Sherlock Holmes" inspired collection, I will be using a brown tweed. Do the same for the lining.
