It’s a perfect dress up costume for Halloween, Easter or any other special occasion… or a fun fancy dress outfit to have around for everyday play!


Your cape fabric needs to be woven. The edging on the feathers isn’t finished so they will be easiest in a fabric that doesn’t fray such as felt, however you could use whatever you like! Leather, vinyl, fur, Serger/overlocker NOT required.

This listing is just for the child’s version. Click here for the adults add-on. Or get the bundle with both here –

The pattern is trim-free, comes in A4 or US letter size, and has layers in the PDF so you can print only the size/s you want. There is also an A0 format included in case you’d like to take it to a professional printer.

It’s adorable on the littles….

… and super cool for boys!

    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’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.

The Small Print


Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.

We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.


This pattern can be used to make beautiful little garments for personal use, or can be made in limited quantities to sell. You can only sell the finished product; you cannot sell the pattern or these instructions. We’d love you to include a credit to as the pattern designer when you make garments from the pattern to sell, but it’s up to you.


As soon as you have paid you will receive a link to download the pattern, so you can get started immediately if you like. Note, this is a digital, download-only pattern. You will not receive a physical copy in the post.
