DIY Cape - McCalls 6209

Pattern: McCalls 6209 | Fabric: Wool Blend | Shoes: Jessica Simpson Claudette Pump | Bag: DSW (similar

Hey, everyone! Today's DIY is this gorgeous and comfy cape I made using McCalls 6209 View A.

It's a very straightforward pattern and great for beginners (if you're not afraid of buttonholes). The only additional construction detail I added was top stitching. I love a nice clean top stitching and so I top stitched the entire cape as well as the belt.

My fabric is a wool blend from Micheal Levine's which is great for this cape. The fabric cuts and sews up wonderfully. I considered lining this cape, but didn't have any ivory lining on hand and I really needed to get this done. Since both sides of the cape show, I wanted one uniform color.

I styled it over a simple tee, denim, nude pumps, and my color-block bag. I purchased the bag from DSW a couple of years ago, so I linked to a similar style.

All of the views in this pattern are a must have for the fall. At some point, I plan on sewing them all!
