Let’s draft the pattern of this trendy cape.
Start from a block with waist darts only and a matching two pieces sleeve.
On both back and front, draw the dart closer to the side seam (instead of halfway) and raise the armhole/shoulder by 2-3cm. shape the center back balancing what you lose at the hip line.
Flare 2-4cm from the side seam. on center front draw the button stand.
Trace the 4 separate pieces from the bodice and mark all the notches that you see.
Get back to the construction, cut the sleeve in the center and align it to the bodice, matching the notches.
From the armhole that you raised, draw a line parallel to the center and then few perpendiculars to open the pleat volume.
Cut through the lines.
Separate the pieces and open 4-6cm in each cut for the sleeve pleats.
Merge front sleeve with the back block.
This is the new block.
Reshape the sleeve cap and mark all the pleats.
The pattern is almost finished: center back, side back panel, side front panel, center front, collar band, two parts of the sleeve.
Add the cape part to the pattern and you’re done.
