The cape: a wise fashion choice | Canadian sewing blog Fabricville

For fall days and slightly cooler temperatures, there’s nothing like an elegant cape to warm up in style. It is a practical garment that combines warmth and comfort without compromising on chic. The cape proves to be a versatile fashion accessory, capable of enhancing any outfit, whether jeans, a dress or tailored pants.

Choice of pattern and fabric

For my project, I chose the V1818 pattern from the famous Vogue brand, created by the talented duo of American designers Tom and Linda Platt. Their design philosophy, “Life is complicated, clothes should be simple!” ”, results in flattering pieces with clean silhouettes and bold details.

During my visit to Fabricville in search of the ideal fabric, I was captivated by the beautiful Westminster coat fabric in a captivating magenta hue. As a fan of vibrant colors, I fell madly in love with this unique pink-red shade, a color that not only catches the eye but also stands out among all the others. And guess what? The prestigious house Pantone has crowned the shade “Viva Magenta” as the color of the year 2023! Hooray for this powerful and invigorating trend that ecstasies us!

The making

The design of this cape is loose and unlined. It features a double layer (capelet), front bands, stitched hems and mitered corners. The sewing skill level listed on the pattern envelope is Medium/Medium. In total there are 6 pieces to cut. For greater rigidity, the collar and fronts must be interfaced.

Armed with my erasable pencil and diligently following the pattern’s instructions, I traced each corner with the precision of a master craftsman. The result? Impeccable stitching, without any excess fabric or bulge! And all this, thanks to my faithful sewing companion, my Singer “Heavy Duty” sewing machine. Thanks to its powerful motor, it effortlessly tames thick fabric with astonishing ease.

Even though this model seems easy, it didn’t come together in a snap! It is crucial to manually baste the edges of the cape before sewing it permanently. This step took a lot of time but guarantees consistent seam values ​​for a high-end result.

During the fitting, I noticed that the rounded part of the capelet at shoulder level was too wide for my figure. So I decided to revise the design by reducing the curve about 1/2 inch from the original outline. Often in sewing, it’s these kinds of minor adjustments that make all the difference.

In summary, the cape is a versatile and stylish garment that can add a touch of sophistication to your fall wardrobe. Whether you wear it to warm up on an outdoor stroll or to enhance your outfit on a special evening, the cape is a wise fashion choice for this season.
