As Sherlock knows, we all need at least one Inverness cape in our wardrobe. Somewhat cobbled together but detailed none the less, here is a cutter's guide for an Inverness cape, with instructions on drafting a quarter-scale paper version, and a vintage sizable pattern for an Inverness cape from Pumpkiny. Next is a photographic tutorial on tailoring an Inverness cape from Jim at The Sewing Academy at Home. I love the idea of making a model to test-drive the construction, and the antique Goodyear hard rubber buttons on his finished garment make me swoon. This cape would add a several cups of romantic dash to any gadabout’s attire during the upcoming chilly months.
