The Gang’s Capes – Hannah

Fairy Tale Cape by thisblogisnotforyou.comMay I present – Hannah and her gorgeous Fairy Tale Cape (she really looks as if she walked right out of a fairy tale)! You can read Hannah’s full review on the pattern on her blog You should also check out the awesome sewing machine tattoo she got last week (I’m a bit jealous)!

Hannah’s cape turned out to be super fabulous! Fairy Tale Cape by thisblogisnotforyou.comHannah used a dusty pink suiting style fabric for her cape and chose to line it with the “softest, fluffiest fabric you have ever felt”. It really does look very soft, fluffy and comfy, I have to say! And it goes so well with the dusty pink colour of the cape. I love how you can see the little fluffy furry bits at the hem and front of the cape. It makes it look so cosy!Fairy Tale Cape by

The Gang’s Capes – Berry

Fairy Tale Cape by thisblogisnotforyou.comBerry made her beautiful Fairy Tale Cape using a light wool and contrasting buttons.Fairy Tale Cape by

She chose to add real buttonholes and sew an invisible hem with her machine (very nicely done, Berry!).Fairy Tale Cape by thisblogisnotforyou.comI love the colour of the wool and the large hood drapes perfectly. The contrasting buttons are so cute and give the cape a slightly vintage-looking touch. Fairy Tale Cape by

This is Rachael’s version of the Fairy Tale Cape! Isn’t it fabulous? I think it’s a real showstopper! She used purple velvet as her main fabric and decided to make it floor-length and to line the hood.

You know what this cape reminds me of? 

I haven’t seen the movie yet (I’m only into the old Disney movies – Hakuna Matata, guys!) but I’ve seen enough pictures lately to immediately think of Elsa’s (?) cape in Frozen when I saw Rachael’s version.

The Gang’s Capes – Lisa

Hello my lovely readers and sewing nerds!

After the release of my debut pattern on Friday, I want to share the gorgeous capes with you which my awesome pattern tester gang made! The ladies did an amazing job and they all were super creative! Every cape looked absolutely stunning and I was amazed by how everyone added their own touch to the pattern. I can’t wait to see more capes popping up on the interwebs!

The Fairy Tale Cape Pattern

Fairy Tale Cape pattern by thisblogisnotforyou.comI really do love this pattern, it is so refreshing to see something so different and unusual but as the same time feminine and useful. It was crazy easy to sew together, and overall a very enjoyable project with many possibilities for embellishment and personalisation.

Really cosy cape. Great to travel in – as its smart like a coat, but snuggly like a blanket, love the freedom to move around in!
