The Constance Cape by Jilly Atlanta

Among the hustle and bustle of getting ready for the upcoming Christmas season, I managed to squeeze in one more pattern test for my sweet friend Jill of Jilly Atlanta. The Constance Cape is available now in her Etsy shop and will be only $5 for the first 24 hours! The perfect winter accessory for any little lady.

I chose to sew this one up in a plaid brushed cotton just perfect for the holidays. I went with the ruffled collar option, because let's face it I have a thing for ruffled collars! I also chose to do the straight hem, but I can't wait to try out the scalloped hem version of this cape as well!

The inside of the cape is fully lined and can easily be made reversible. My little princess was sick, so I wasn't able to get out to pick up any new materials for this one. So I went with a solid red cotton for the lining. 

The pattern includes instructions for cutting your ties on the bias, but I wanted to add a fun pop of red to our cape. These ties are just a red velvet ribbon that I had on hand. Love how sweet this one turned out.

The pattern ranges from size 2t up to a size 14. Pieces are nested and layered to save on what you print! There are so many fun combinations you can make with this pattern with the two collar options, two hem line options, and two closure options!

Suggested woven fabrics for the cape include- wool, lightweight denim, lightweight corduroy, linen, and cotton. You can really have fun with this one!
