This reversible cape was the first project I wanted to do from the book, Make it Perfect which I won over on Leslie's blog.
This pattern was very straightforward and easy to follow and I like the lines and shape of this piece. Scarlet likes it too and I think it will get good use this Spring. The only issue I had with it was the interfacing which I ended up removing. I would have used a different one then the book recommends but I also think it works fine without it.
One one side I used a red floral Katie Jump Rope fabric I've been holding onto for ages from Denyse Schmidt and on the other an owl fabric that I believe is Alexander Henry.
The book has a nice mix of designs for women and children up to age five though I like the children's designs more. There are some really cute tops and skirts for girls and a nice pair of shorts I want to try for Matthew.
I was sure S would like the owl side better but she surprised me declaring she likes the red side better. Perhaps the expressions say it all.
