The Cecilia Cape is the most beginner friendly clothing pattern next to the vest, so for beginners wanting to make clothing patterns this is the place to start! Since it can be made without a serger (overlock) as well this is a true beginner friendly pattern. The sample was made using quilting weight cotton for both the exterior and the lining. For a softer feel, using fusible fleece is an option. However the cape can become something different mattering on the material! For example using oil cloth will turn it into a rain coat, using a towel could turn it into a bathrobe for a day at the beach, and for using it in the winter applying fur will be very warm.
