Free 1910s Cape Pattern - click here!

Hi! If you've been following us on Instagram you may have seen the explosion of capes. We've released a free PDF gridded pattern for a fabulous 1910s cape. It's very easy to make and is a quick weekend project.

Update for 2021 - We have discontinued our Patreon, so the free cape pattern is now hosted for download on my personal Google Drive. If you get a warning from Google, it's normal, they just want to make sure the document is virus-free.

The pattern is based on this original 1910s cape. Appears to have been sold by Martini Consignment.

We hope you enjoy the cape pattern! We'd love to see your makes too - tag us @americanduchess on Instagram or Facebook and use the hashtag #ADCapeCult .

  2. Hi, am I just too dumb to get it, or do the shoulder seam markings not line up? Also the shoulder seam on the back piece is shorter than on the front wrap piece.

    1. I have the same problem. It seems if you print the guide and cut the pieces out of the paper, they line up exactly. But the grid size is different on the page with the sleeve, so if you go by the grid to measure it out on the fabric, the sleeve will come out too large compared to the other parts. Or maybe we're both doing it wrong? :P

  4. Apologies as am coming to this endeavour late; is it possible to find the pattern somewhere? The links lead to frustratingly blank pages.
