Fabrics Your cape fabric needs to be woven. The edges of the feathers aren’t finished so they are best suited to a fabric that doesn’t fray such as felt. However you can use whatever you like for the decorative elements, such as leather, vinyl, or fur. A serger/overlocker is optional but  NOT required.

Format This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.

NOTE – There are photos in the pattern of modification options but the tutorial and pattern is only for a feathered cape as per the photo below.

    I loved seeing it transform from ordinary to extraordinary as the details were added. There is no limit to what you can create with it.

    The sky is the limit. This pattern is the solid bones of a great creative garment. I love the creativity it allowed. The wing dimensions were wide enough to allow for full “wings” but don’t overwhelm my child. The hood is loose enough that it is comfortable to pull on and off.

    This pattern has endless options, you are only limited by your imagination! The colouring pages give children a terrific sense of creation right from the start of the process, they can have as little or as much input into the design as they like.

    This pattern is the most versatile and easy to follow, and offers a stunning finished product! It can be created in the most simple of ways or fancied up to the nines for a production…. it is an absolute must-have for creative minds!

    It seems like a lot of work but it comes together surprisingly quickly! And looks so fantastic at the end!

    Go for it! It’s easy and fun plus the kids will play with it all year! I like that it’s simple to put together, so many possibilities, and comfortable for the child to wear and play with.

    It’s a great stand alone pattern but it also gives you the base and then you can take it wherever you’re imagination leads you.
