For those of you just joining us, I am on part 4 of 7 of the Barbie Musketeer Costumes.
1/3 yard pink satin
1/3 yard gold satin
1/3 yard gold trim
basic sewing supplies
Cut one piece of pink satin and one piece of gold satin measuring 21 inches by 12 inches.
Okay, you have two options here.
Option 1: Pin the pink and gold pieces together wrong sides together and use your rolled hem edge to finish the edges all the way around the cape. Then jump down below to finish.
Option 2: Pin the pink and gold pieces together right sides together and sew all the way around, leaving a 5 inch opening to turn it right side out. Press and topstitch around, closing the opening as you go.
Stitch your gold trim about 1.5 inches from the bottom of the cape (the narrow sides are the top and bottom). Fold the ends under at the begining and end.
Place a basting stitch about 1/2 inch from the top of the cape and gather slightly.
Using a zigzag stitch, attach to the back neckline of the peasant top. It should run from one sleeve seam to the other.
And that's it. Now the easy parts are done. The trickier parts are yet to come! ;0)
