INBHIR NIS TRENCH CAPE COAT - PDF PATTERN
This pattern is my take on a classic cape and is a perfect make to sharpen up your outerwear collection.
This sleeveless trench features a dramatic, high grown on collar with a removable A-Line cape, and a wrap belt to cinch in that waist.
The pattern also features additional style lines to help you create either a contrast collar (such as a faux fur trim) or to transform the neckline into an open collar.
- V1 has a dramatically large grown on collar, which includes a style line on the pattern if you want to convert it to a contrast top collar or reduce the front placket bulk when using heavier weight fabrics.
- V2 is an open collar and easily hackable if you want to introduce other collar styles.
