    ...and it doesn't have to be a member selling. Are there any modern makers? can't seem to find anything on the internet machine, though I may need to try different key words.
    In lieu of the actual cape, anyone know of a pattern?
    I have seen them on ebay, but they tend to run on the smaller side. I'm looking for somewhere in the neighborhood of 5'8"+, height/weight propotionate.

    Thanks for any help.

    I have one that's vintage, but it won't be cheap. I paid quite a lot for it.

    You can PM if interested. I'm short and it should be perfect for you based on your height. I thought I posted a pic here in the Outerwear thread, but can't seem to find it.

    i saw an beautiful nurse's cape in incredible condition at an antique shop in Los Alamos, California called "Gussied Up Antiques." This was a month ago on July 17th. 805-344-2504.

    I do not remember the price or sizing, but perhaps if you called them they could assist you.

    Okay: which one of my friends have you been talking to?
    PM sent.

    Thanks so much for the replies. I'm shooting for this to be a Christmas present.

    V.Betty - I'd look mighty darn silly in a nurse's cape.

    She's always fawning over the capes that some of the oldtimers still have.
    Thanks again.

    My wife went to a Halloween party as a WWII nurse and had to rent the cape. I'm sure she would also buy one if the price was right.
    Good luck with your search.

    Sincerely,
    The Wolf
