A paneled cape with tie belted waist, the Kea Cape is easy to sew & a little bit different. Feminine, flowing and practical, it will keep you warm at the park or the opera. Easy to sew, the tie belt is inserted through the front and back of the Cape for a flattering silhouette. Slightly curved over the chest to flatter the bust with an easily adjustable A-symmetrical hem line lowering at the back. Perfect for confident beginners, the cape is mostly straight or slightly curved lines with a little bit of top stitching around the arm and belt openings.
