So I just saw this cape from the Wolf collection in a shop window today and...wow! The pictures don't do it justice!

I NEED to own this, and seeing as I don't have $700+ lying around I need to make it Smiley

The front is straight, with seams coming down where her hands are coming out, but the sides swing around, and it is longer than it looks, I think the model is just really tall.
Does anyone have any tips on how to make this, or possibly any vague pattern ideas?

Here are some patterns that I found online:

McCall's 2853 - http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M2853.htm (you would need to shorten and make slits for your hands and pockets)

Butterick 4266-  http://www.butterick.com/item/B4266.htm  (I have this and didn't have time to finish last Halloween but it seems super easy. Only thing though, if your fabric has a nap or print, get extra fabric!! I didn't have enough) 

Simplicity 4947 - http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm?page=search.cfm&numMatch=2&design_id=11563&design=4947&thumbnail_image=4947t.jpg&ldesc=Misses%27%20Capes&size_range=One%20Size
(you would need to add slits & pockets and make it shorter but the hood looks similar)

...i finished off the rest of the ice cream so i expect to be having another butt in the morning!!

I think the New Look pattern is quite close.

I have a pattern in Dutch for a cape quite like this one. It's full length, but you can change that quite easily.


The squares are 4x4 cm, that is about 1.5x1.5 inch.

Thanks everyone for your ideas!  The new look one is probably the closest, I had a better look at it instore (well through the shop window) and the front is cut almost like a coat, then there is a front/side and back/side piece and then 2 back pieces.  I'm working on getting a better picture because thepicture I posted doesn't do it justice!

I've been looking for a way to make a cape exactly like this too. They're so classy, I love them.
I hate to go out and buy patterns, because I feel I can draft up one just as good or find a free one to copy somewhere. So, thank you Ashala for posting yours! But can I ask a few questions so I can alter the pattern as needed?...
-Can you tell me how full the cape is? is it like the one in the photo or thinner?
-Can you also tell me how the hood hangs? Is is tight around the head or does is hang alot?

Actually, I have no idea how it looks. I've never made it, I just remembered it was in an old sewing course my grandma gave me long time ago. I think the cape is quite full, it will come close to the one in the photo. The hood is not that big, just normal fit, as far as I can see. (But most hoods on clothes I buy are tighter, or don't even fit, so it is bigger than that.)
