This top technically doesn't have an attached cape (like my recent ones: the "Wonder Woman"cape top, and the Black Silk Cape top), but when I wear it, the sleeves feel like I have on a mini-cape!
Hot Patterns any longer. I'm a member of their Facebook group and when the pattern was offered for sale earlier this year, I jumped on it.
Emma One Sock, but wanted to test the fit first since I haven't sewn many of the Hot Patterns designs.
The fabric is a sparkly medium-weight knit purchased locally at SR Harris Fabric Warehouse. It was the perfect weight for this design. Any heavier and I think the sleeves wouldn't sit properly and the neck and hem band would be difficult to sew. The sleeves hang nicely with just enough drape and movement. Something to keep in mind when choosing your fabric is that the wrong side of the fabric will show on the inside of the sleeves
Eloflex stretch thread from Coats and Clark.
The only alteration I did on this one was a small FBA (full bust adjustment). Next time I'll increase the FBA slightly and do a small forward shoulder adjustment.
Conclusion? It's a fairly easy pattern to sew, and a fun and stylish top to wear.
