Double cape and Bonnet

This turned out so lovely, it is a very easyily moderate pattern to complete. The instructions call for interfacing but doesn't specify the flexibilty of it. I recommend light, as I used a nice wool and a flannel and used 2 layers of light interfacing, and it was too much. Use one layer. The bonnet sews up nicely and is the cutest bonnet ever. I made two of both, one for myself and one for my adult daughter. The phot will show the bonnet before I sewed on the little strap. That truly finishes off the bonnet. I found little gold buttons at Joann's with anchors embossed on them, perfect for Caroline. I got 2 capes out of 1 yard of wool, and 1 1/4 yds of flannel. I recommend the pattern for the historical dolls.

Wonderful lines

I haven't done the whole thing but this is a versatile cloak, you can really make it in different ways. Here it is reduced to 70% to fit Little Darling. Eve is a wonderful seamstress! One of the finest out there.
