Velvet Hooded Cape

What do you do when you want to take a picture of the long black hooded velvet cape you just finished, but the teenager who will wear it is not around? Well, if you’re like me, you get Little Miss 7 to stand on a chair! Doesn’t she look tall?! The cape looks great, too.

It is for my lovely niece and is made of heavy, slightly stretchy black velvet with a red velvet ribbon. The pattern is McCall’s 4139  for a lined hooded cape. This one doesn’t have the lining so it was even quicker than the 2 hours suggested on the pattern packet. There is also a version with a stand-up collar (think Count Dracula) and a capelet over the top.

I especially love the red velvet ribbon against the black – great choice, Miss E!

If you’re after this pattern, just in time for Halloween, you can find it over at Amazon:
