Oh hi there. There has been a lot of interest in the free American Duchess Cape pattern, so we decided a sewalong was just the thing we need to get this forum really going! While this pattern is a 1910s style wrap, it is also perfect for fantasy costumes. It can easily be modified to fit into your fantasy/WoT ensemble, and we will be offering some suggestions on how to add a hood as well. So without further ado... let's get started!
