I am needing to make a cape (shawl) for a beginner. Any hints please? Like measurements. I remember seeing details a few years ago. Didn't need it then. I am making skirts for 5 yr. olds to 11 year olds. Thanks for your help in advance. You can always e-mail me if you like.

Hi Rosemarie--what style do you want? I can send you directions and photos if youd like? (NT)HthThursday, November 08, 06:58:12am

I cut a 24" square on grain. Occasionally I need a 27" one for the taller girls. Narrow zigzag 5/8" from raw edge. Pull threads to fringe about 1/4 - 3/8" on each edge. Fold diagonally and pin at shoulder and hip. I embroider a design from the school dress on the bottom left corner of the shawl, but it can be left plain as well. I've seen some that sew the triangle RST and then turn right side out to make a finished triangle. (NT)BJThursday, November 08, 08:28:35am

You guys are the best. Thanks so much. (NT)Rosemarie (Kelso Custom Covers)Thursday, November 08, 08:58:43am
