Chic Cape PDF Sewing Pattern


The Chic Cape is an elegant, stylish and oh-so cosy cover-up, perfect for Autumn and Winter.

With a nod to French elegance, it’s something you can throw on over any outfit and feel instantly put-together. And it’ll pair so perfectly with your favourite pom pom hat!

The Chic Cape is fully lined and features armhole slits between the front and side seams. It has a pretty rounded collar and closes at the front with press studs (disguised with self-covered buttons! That’s right, no buttonholes!). Because the cape is completely lined there is no need for any seam finishes, which makes this a perfect project if you don’t have an overlocker.

Sewing Level
The Chic Cape sewing pattern is designed for advanced beginner to intermediate sewers. With relatively simple construction, it’s a perfect project for those who have never sewn outerwear before.

Fabric Suggestions
The Chic Cape works best in medium to heavyweight coating fabrics with some drape, such as boiled wool, melton, boucle and wool blends. To find the perfect fabric, have a look our specially curated suggestions.

Fabric Requirements
The Chic Cape is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a print-at-home PDF pattern? A print-at-home pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on your home printer. Simply download, print, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, make sure you print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, and check that the square measures 10cm x 10cm. If you have never used a print-at-home sewing pattern before and would like some help, check out our Guide to Assembling PDF Patterns.

PLEASE NOTE the Chic Cape is a downloadable sewing pattern which you have to print at home or send to a copyshop. At the end of the checkout process you will receive an email with the link to your pattern and instructions.

Happy sewing!
