A short, elbow-length cape with a frilled lower edge and collar. The cape is gently shaped throughout to give a soft bell-like drape. Picked up and knitted edge-to-edge borders and a slightly flared collar are both lightly embellished with beads. A pinned corsage acts as the front closure.

Calls for 3 balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze, approx. 295 x 4mm glass beads and a large safety pin or brooch-back for the corsage.

The book also has a pattern for a matching evening bag (Aurora Evening Bag).
