I knew as soon as I saw this Mimi G Cape tutorial that I had to make it. I chose this camel color 100% wool because I wanted it to have significant weight as an outerwear piece. We don’t have many super cold days but the building I work in is old and poorly insulated so I loved the idea of being able to wear the cape all day and keeping warm.
This fabric is really think and while I think it is a good choice, it definitely needs a professional pressing in my opinion, so I’ll take it to the cleaners but I was so excited to show this to you guys so I couldn’t wait.
The skinnies are from Torrid which are my absolute favorite, the perfect rise and amount of stretch and the boots are from Nine West.
Here’s my Review:
Pattern Description: Circle Cape
Pattern Sizing: One size fits most however there is room for size adjustment.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Definitely!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is such a super easy stylish piece.
Fabric Used: 100% Wool
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added about 4 inches to the length of the cape because I’m quite busty and didn’t want to loose the overall finished length. Also instead of the buttons, I used snaps and used one giant bad ass decorative button.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I definitely plan to sew this again and have already bought fabric for my second one.
Conclusion: A super easy sew with a great stylish result.
