Step 5: Sew hood to cape

Pin the hood to the gathered edge of the cape, right sides together, and sew. Be sure to keep your gathering even during the sewing process.

Once the hood is attached to the cape, fold the hood in half widthwise, right sides together, and pin along the top edge. Sew a straight line all the way across the top of the hood. At this point, you can decide if you want to sew a short line across the upper back corner of the hood to keep it from being pointed (see last photo).
Here is the cape my girlfriend made for me. Thanks!
can you do the cape with a different type of fabric?
Sure you can! It will take a little more sewing if you use a fabric that frays because you'll want the edges and seams to look nice. Otherwise you should have no problem.
She is pretty with this cape !
