    • Hi Gail!
      Thanks for commenting! Especially nice stuff. 🙂
      For the cape that I made, I lengthened the jacket front and back by at least 2 inches. I’m 5’8″ and when I made the jacket it just came to the bottom of my ribcage. I wanted the cape a little longer. I eliminated the lining for the cape and after cutting out the collar pieces I trimmed off probably 1/2 an inch or so of the width. I finished the edges with doublefold seam binding and eliminated the buttons, just adding a hook and eye to the neck.
      Wish I had taken pictures of the whole process but email me if you have any questions.
