Laughing Moon 170:  This is a sewing pattern for a wrist length cape that has been copied from an existing cape from the 1890's in the author's collection.  This pattern has the options of one layer or lined, reversible, and optional short standing collar.  The center fronts meet and do not overlap.  There are darts at the shoulders.  The cape is best made with a fabric that is solid color or with an overall non-directional design.  If not altered the center back seam is on the bias and directional prints will be slanted at center back.  There is a suggested pattern alterations in the instructions that will enable a directional print to be on the straight grain at center front and back by transferring the center back seam to the sides.  The design will then be slanted at the side seams.  Optional surface decoration can be of lace, cording, appliques, trim, fur, fringe, beading, purchased neck pieces, or embroidered fabric.  The cording pattern is provided in 4 separate A0 pages divided by size and there are directions for transferring and stitching the design to the cape.  More information is on the back cover and inside the pattern.
