Summer Cape DIY

From the Blogger: "Using one of your scarfs or maybe a half meter of fabric, you can create a lovely summer cape with this simple and quick sewing project. It’s perfect for those chilly nights out or you can use it as a beach coverup too. Use your imagination to find other ways to wrap and wear the cape for a more unique look. This piece will definitely be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. And with thicker fabric, it could work out as a comfy fall cape too."

Time to CompleteUnder an hour

Sewn byEither Hand or Machine


Materials List

  • Scarf (160×70 cm)
  • Needle&Thread
  • Pins
  • Scissors
  • Iron


  1. Lay out the scarf flat.

  2. Measure the length of scarf and then choose your favorite way for making the pleats. I just made them approximately similar to each other using pins. They don’t have to be perfect, just some plain pleats.

  3. After you’re finished with the pleats, sew by hand or use a sewing machine. I started by hand. You can finish this with sewing a ribbon all along the edge or adding a band if you want. So if your scarf doesn’t have fringes, adding the ribbon would be the perfect way to tie the two pieces of scarf together.
