From the blogger: "Much to the chagrin of my kids, I just cannot do store-bought Halloween costumes! So when my 8-year-old asked to be a witch, her DIY costume was complete with a witch's cape... made from a large black t-shirt. Pull out your sewing scissors and black thread to turn an oversized cotton shirt into a cute and functional witches cape for a 'wicked' Halloween night. Add some ruffles and a zig zag bottom to up the homemade Halloween cuteness!"

Materials List

  • Sewing machine + straight pins
  • Sewing scissors
  • Black thread
  • Black ribbon
  • Black large t-shirt

Instructions

  1. Lay t-shirt out flat. Cut off both arms.

  2. Make a cut down the center front of the shirt. From bottom to neckline.

  3. Cut both shoulder seams.

  4. Cut the side seams of the t-shirt so you wind up with two small rectangles. Then, make one large rectangle from the back of the t-shirt.

  5. Pin the smaller rectangles to the larger rectangle on both sides. Sew both sides together.

  6. Cut simple triangles at the bottom of the cape.

  7. Pin the black ribbon to the top of the cape in order to secure around neck.

  8. Use up the t-shirt remnants to form a ruffle on both sides of the cape to cover any seams.
