Simple Hooded Cloak Pattern by Nenesta Simple Hooded Cloak Pattern by Nenesta
Since I got some questions about the pattern I used for my Fleece Cloak.... There you go :dummy:

This looks so professional, I can hardly believe I made this :lmao: Okay, jokes aside, when I make something just for myself my patterns really don't look anything that clean.

I hope this is helpful. And as always, if you got questions just ask me :la:

Looks simple enough... I've always wanted to try and sew a piece of clothing. :)

hi!!! i'm a little bit confused by the 'measure the neckline' bit...

Oh. Well, you need the neckline of the hood to be equally long to the neckline of the cloak, right? Else you won't be able to assemble the pieces fittingly and without folds. So what you need to do is measure the cloak's neckline and then you take that length and copy/transfer it to the hood when drafting the pattern. That way the hood's size actually depends on how big your cloak's neckline is.

Is that more understandable now?

Hello! 

I am making a similar cloak and I am wondering... 

How did you decide what size semicircle to put on the cloak part?

The width was pretty limited by how much fabric I had, for the length I just measured on myself how long I wanted my cloak to be.
Hope that helps! =)

What an awesome pattern! I really like how the back drapes without having to ruche the top of the cloak. I was wondering how did you hem around the bottom edges and the hood?

As you can see here I just used my sewing machine's simple zig-zag stitch for hemming =)

is it possible for the cloak to wrap all the way around the front of the body? i'm looking to make a cloak to wear to a renaissance fair in october with only a bandeau-style top underneath... meaning it will be cold. I love the design of this and i'm just about to use it but i want to make sure it'll work for me first.

You'd need a full circle cloak for that, this one is open in the front. There should be some good patterns here on dA, I hope you'll find one that suits your needs =)
