Soft Capes

I love it when someone asks a question that spurs me to do a post. Thank you Celtic Flame poster.

Here are the soft capes that I have done. There are no set patterns here. To figure out what I want, I whip out the good ol’ muslin and start fooling around. With the dress on my dress dummy, I start pinning, cutting, gathering, draping. Once I have it, I use the muslin to cut my fabric.  I feel like one of those artistes on Project Runway!

This cape did come from the drawing the dancer had done. I used her drawing as a starting point to make the pattern.

This is actually soft fabric over a stiff shawl.

Double layer.

Gathered to hang from stiff piece…which is not secured correctly in this pic. I like the idea of this one…someday I will try it again and figure it better.
