    Good source for a pattern would be cowboy shirts -- they have various types of capes, pointed, round....make your alterations - attach at neck - finish with bias tape or facing and you are in business. I have made a couple tradish shirts with capes -- look real nice!

    Oh, I also stitch through cape and shoulder seam a little to keep it from sliding around. Just a hint!

    cape style dress

    I went to the fabric store and bought a pattern for cape and dress together. I made the cape and cut it to the desired length. It looks great.

    How do you all construct your dress? Do you do a top part, then the bottom, then sew the top and bottom together? Do you do one full dress then do an underskirt for it? I've done them both ways. What do yaz all do?

    How do you construct YOUR dress??
    by luvlumbee
    I was just wondering how do you construct your dress. What I mean by this is, if you use satin do you line it? What other materials do you use for dresses besides poplin, cotton, satin, velvet etc,. I am all about experimenting!
