Cape Dracula Final 5.6 ...


So I finally came around to finish this pattern. Pattern finishing is connected with some drawing and indication adding which makes it time consuming. And I have a bit of enough of my own pattern publishing for some time. It is a lot of fun but I am lazy.

Will relax by making some BWOF next or easy patterns that I don't draft in computer - I have a newborn appreciation for that!

You can download the pattern here. It is 38 BWOF size but it is quite easy to adapt since it has to fit only at the shoulders and you define the waist with the belt. You can just add your measurements there.

Some explanations to the pattern - all the additional pieces as lining, interfacing and facings are drawn in.

The lining:
(you can enlarge the images, the lines are drawn in the pdf)




The interfacing:
(forgot to put the back facing - it is interfaced too)




The facings:



The connections:




I have a thing for fancy diagrams...

P.S for Stephanie - the amount of fabric is around 1,5 meter.

I am so in love with this pattern! It is amazing- it even looks wonderful on paper. I signed up for my burda account just for this!

I love sewing blogs and I just found yours. I really like your diagrams. They are very helpful.

Hi Geri!

I can't wait to make it for this fall season- one question though, how much fabric did you need to use? Maybe I'm just not reading carefully about the amount of fabric. Thanks!

does the darker green for the interfacing mean heavier interfacing in those areas? i'm in the middle of the muslin prototype (I'm a complete beginner probably taking on too much)

Hey since Burda changed their site your patterns are gone. Any chance of reposting them or emailing them?

To see the pattern go to www.old.burdastyle.com. Look for under 'patterns' and choose 'cape'. It's the first one there.

O no! The pattern is gone from the old burda style page. Such a great cape, is there a link to it somewhere else?
