A Cape for all Seasons

I have had the Oliver and S Forest Path Cape for awhile, but with it being summer I had no desire to make it despite having the perfect fabric and buttons.

A couple of weeks ago, wanting something quick, I decided to give it a go.

This pattern is quick and easy to make. My only issue was the buttons were a bit too big for the automatic button hole foot on my machine.  A little bit of duct tape holding it at its widest setting was an easy solution and worked brilliantly.  I swear duct tape fixes everything.

It is a size 3T, but lengthened to a 4T, I probably could have sized down a bit in the width, but at least it should fit next year.  The perks of a small kid.

The forest path cape is a downloadable pattern, and it was a breeze to put together, everything matched which is an added bonus

This cape was perfect over a dress for a birthday party that was cold and raining.  I am looking forward to being able to layer it for winter.
