Details

Saves all that time finding fabric and sewing it ! Available in four sizes:

When measuring (see image above) :

1. Bust: Taken at fullest part of the chest
2. Waist: Taken at natural waistline
3. Hip: Taken around fullest part of the buttocks
4. Torso: From right shoulder through the leg and back up to the right shoulder. Do not pull tape tight.
5. Inner Leg: From the crotch to 2.5cm above floor in bare feet.

The crucial thing with the capes is the length. They should sit between wrist and knuckle so measuring from collar seam to knuckle and see which is the closest to the measurements below.

Approximate measurements of cape lengths:

Extra Small - Length from collar seam to bottom of cape at back of cape = 59.5cm at red panel = 57cm

Small - Length from collar seam to bottom of cape at back of cape = 64.5cm at red panel = 62cm

Medium - Length from collar seam to bottom of cape at back of cape = 70cm at red panel = 67.5cm

Large - Length from collar seam to bottom of cape at back of cape = 75cm at red panel = 72.5cm

 

NB: To be able to sell these fully made for $80 the fabric is not the most expensive satin available. The satin will not always be perfect and does sometimes contain small flaws (maybe a small run). Most people will not notice these flaws as they are very small and you would need to search cm by cm to find them. They are certainly not noticeable from a distance. If the manufacturer had to dispense with large sections of the fabric due to a small run being found, the price of the capes would become prohibitive to most customers.

Customer Reviews

Excellent jig cape Review by Amy
I am so pleased that jig capes are now in stock at McPhee's. The thought of making a cape or finding someone to make one was daunting. The quality is excellent and the fabric is a lovely weight. Thank you Elaine for your help and very fast delivery. (Posted on 24/11/15)
