Green Your Halloween: Upcycle Jacket to Costume Cape

4 Flares 4 Flares ×

Looking to save money on this year’s Halloween costumes?  Someone need a cape? Maybe you have an old jacket in your closet that would work for free!


When one of my kids expressed an interest in a witch’s cape, I found this thrift store jacket for $5.


I cut off the sleeves, then sewed a line from the shoulder to the side that follows the ribbon used for illustrative purposes in the photo, changing the line of the jacket into a less structured cape.


The result is an easy cape that took about 15 minutes to make.  While it is not as full as some capes, it filled the need for a quick costume fix!
