Easy butterfly wing cape for children

ButterflyWingsCapeforChildrenI had no plans to sew a butterfly wing cape for my daughter, until I came along with this amazing fabric at Hancock Fabrics. It is a sheer fabric with eye catching rainbow colors. All my materials were rainbow colored, including fabric, ric rac border and the thread.

Butterfly Wings


  • 3/4 yards sheer / light fabric (60″ width)

  • Hem the edges of the fabric
  • Pleating the fabric, pin the border in the middle to make the torso.

Butterfly Wings

  • Cut pieces of the border to make handles and pin them on the upper corners of the fabric.
  • Create shoulder straps, making 8 loop with the border and pin it on the middle top.
  • Try it on to see how it works.
  • Sew all the ric rac borders, i.e. middle for the body, upper corners for the handles and shoulder straps  on to the fabric.
