Cape Coat

This is a very famous sewing magazine named  'Misses's Style Book',  which is issued 4 times a year.  It has a lot of great sewing patterns, and they are based on ready-to-wear apparel clothes.  I love this magazine so much!

I decided to make this cape coat from this issue.

a hoodie cape coat
I have some big sleeved shirts like dorman sleeve shirts, and I don't have any jackets or coats on them, and I thought this kind of coat is very good for them.

When I finished to make patterns, I found the fabric piece I had planned to use for this was not enough. So I drafted a collar instead of a hood.

I put a full-lining, so it's very warm :)
I'm satisfied with the result!

You are right about big dolman sleeves shirts. A cape is a perfect solution to wear those shirts in winter. Your cape is so perfectly made I am so jealous. I have this issue of mrs stylebook but, really, this magazine is just way over my head.

Thank you for your comment.
Oh, you have this magazine,too! I think this pattern isn't so difficult, much easier than you expect. Just draft lines following the measurements. Why don't you try? :)

Wow Taeco! Great coat! Those welt pockets on your coat looks amazing, if not perfect! Based on your recommendations, I think I'm going to check at Kinokuniya if they have this Mrs. Stylebook issue available. For sure I'm going to go gaga over those jackets they are featuring on this issue. ^_^

Thank you! ^^
I really recommend this magazine because it has a lot of hot and fashionable items (even though we need to draft patterns ourselves).
I hope you will find it at Kinokuniya! ^.^
