Materials List

  • 3.75 yards of Fleece, or Jersey knit for exterior
  • 0.5 yards of fleece or jersey knit for hood lining
  • 1 yard of leather cording ( or ribbon)
  • Thread
  • Sewing Essentials (scissors, pins, etc.)


  1. You will need to assemble the pattern. For instructions on how to assemble the pattern see link.

  2. Cut out the pieces to the cape- To save you from endless pattern assembly the cape pattern piece doubles as the back piece and the front pieces (yay for saving trees). However this means that you need to do a couple of different things when you cut out the pattern. I’ve sewn for 2 decades and have never come across a designed like this = so even if you’re a seasoned sewist you need to pay attention.

  3. Each pattern piece is actually 2 pattern pieces – you will cut down the pieces to make it the next pattern piece ( for example you will cut out the exterior of the hood, cut down the pattern piece and then cut the interior).

  4. Cape section: Cut the pattern to the length you want (there are two – I’m 5’4" and the shorter length was good for me).

  5. Cut 1 of the back piece – place the pattern piece with the BLUE line on the fold. There will be lip of paper (.5 inches) that hangs over the edge of the fabric. This will make 1 large back piece. Now Cut the pattern piece to become the front piece. Cut on the red lines at the neck, and at the bottom (curve up so you don’t trip on the cape). Then place on folded fabric making sure ENTIRE pattern i son the fabric (no paper lip hanging over). Cut out pattern making two pieces for the front. Note: to conserve on fabric I turned the pattern around – this might not work with some pattern

  6. Cut out the hood- On doubled Fabric, cut two of the hood exterior. Then cut down pattern piece on the red line. On doubled fabric cut two of the hood lining.
