I want to make a Full Circle Cape Wrap. It has been way too many years and I don't remember how. Free would be wonderful but a reasonable price will work also.

Oh gosh. years ago I made a coat out of a twin size blanket. very easy and looked good. for some reason I gave it away. in one of my cleaning out moods perhaps.
Good luck. it's very cute.

I saw some Chiffon circle wraps/shawls at the Des Moines Quilt show. It was a circle of fabric with two rectangular ovals cut for the armholes. When worn the top of the circle folds back like a cape and collar. The ones she had needed more space between the arm holes for me but they were pretty. I think I will see if I can find some fabric to try to make on. The price was $24.

Bozie, thanks for the link. It is not what I am looking for. I need instructions to make a wrap like Quilting Wifey describes.

It is a circle with armholes cut out. When worn the top of the circle folds down to make a collar. Or, it can be worn pulled up for a hood. These were popular back in the 60s. Some called them 'hippie coats'. They have to be easy to make but I am uncertain where to place the armholes and the shape.

I M Joyce,

The ones I saw at the quilt show were in the booth of "A Charming Affair / R & J Specialties" 541-521-2918, rsteele0824@gmail.com from Eugene,OR. This is the info on the slip of paper she gave me.

What I saw there was an "oval circle" about 60" wide with the two armholes cuts starting about 15-20 inches below the top edge. I would measure your own back from shoulder to shoulder, then divide that by 2 and use that figure to mark first edge of the armhole. Their armhole was cut about 12" long and about 3-4 inches wide.

When I tried one on it felt like there was strain across the back and cutting into the arm at the front, so I would make sure I had the armholes cut far enough apart and wide enough that they didn't cut into the arm in front.

The ones they had were mostly a white chiffon with a gradiation of grey from top to bottom in the center, but at the bottom of the piece was a single large flower either teal or pink or purple.

I'm hoping to see if I can find some chiffon and try it out. The edges were finely serged.

Good luck. Let us know what you find and how it turns out.

This is helpful information. I have some wool I think would work. In roaming the net trying to find something I came across a site selling undyed silk ready made wraps.

Chiffon would make a nice light wrap. It would create an intersting upscale layered outfit. We are having a fall craft fair soon. I think I will go just to see if someone has them for sale.

I finally found this by changing the search wording.

There was a demo at guild several years ago for the one more like a vest. Several were done in fleece. A little longer than the vest but not as long as the one with white tassels. I didn't get around to making one at the time, so no help there.

I M Joyce, I think that is the same general idea as the ones I saw, just a shorter version. I will have to see if I have that issue of Threads upstairs. It would be great to make in some different fabrics for different occasions. I thought the chiffon one would be good with dresses at church when the AC get to be too much. Funny what a simple layer will do.
