Alterations have finally been completed!
Each cape now falls slightly above the hemline as was discovered during my Red Riding Hood research project.
The adjustment was actually a lot easier than I had anticipated.....I merely clipped away the corners from along the lower edge and.....
I love how much swirl this minor change brought to the cape.
Even better, this half circle version is now sized correctly for both.....
....the Robert Raikes Hitty.....
....as well as the Gail Wilson version I was also working with.
So now that I have one specific pattern to work with I can turn my attention to creating a variety of other options. A blue plaid cape per chance?
Or some new colors and designs for the embroidery would be fun.
And then of course there are the unlimited options for the cape lining.....calico, florals, dotted, gingham.....whatever can be imagined!
Can't wait to get started on a new batch!
