This cute, reversible girls cape pattern is an ideal Winter sewing pattern for kids. It is lined and reversible so all your stitching is hidden inside the cape and no serger is required. I have used Velcro for the tab fastening but you could also use a button or even a sew-in press stud. Make it plain and simple or add a fun applique like this little red riding hood.

Fabric Choices

For the outside of the girls cape pattern, I like to use corduroy, light wool or fleece. Denim in a light or medium weight also looks amazing and is easy to sew. This gives some body to the cape and adds a little warmth. My red cape sample was made using velvet but admittedly this was much harder to sew than the corduroy and denim samples.

Use a slightly thinner lining to reduce bulk. Quilting cotton works well and is easy to sew.
