I used this cape pattern as a base for making myself a period cloak. I lengthened the back and left the slits open.

I haven't made this yet but the item arrived instantly, download was a breeze, and it printed in good quality. Really excited for my new machine to arrive so I can make this next weekend 😁

Great pattern for a beginner. This was my first apparel project and I found the instructions very easy to follow. The only reason this project ended up hard for me was because I tried to add a lining, which isn't part of the pattern.
