Rigid Collar Vampire Cape Sewing Tutorial
From the blogger: "This easy DIY vampire cape has a rigid, stand-up collar to look just like Dracula! This handmade Halloween costume is made with your body measurements, so you can sew a cloak for any age and any size. Even better? All ages will have fun swirling around in it! The cape itself is a circle of black fabric with a neck hole. The stand-up collar has heavyweight interfacing to make it stiff, and it is sewn onto the neck hole. Overlap the edges, add a snap and button, and you're ready to trick or treat!"
