I was very impressed with the pattern I received. Purchasing and downloading worked perfectly. The cloak came out really nicely thanks to the detailed and excellent instructions. I found it helpful to put a piece of interfacing on the back of the small circle at the back of the cloak hood, especially for slippery fabrics. This gave that piece more structure and made it easier to put the hood together. I also found I needed to put a gathering line of sewing along the front edge of the hood to ease it to fit the lining. Aside from that, the instructions covered everything. It was fun to make something with so many extra touches; a really great pattern!
While the final results were lovely, sewing the lining down at the neck seam was very difficult. There was almost too much gathered fabric to fit. I made the cape of cotton velveteen and satin.
loved the look . I had problems with the sewing on the gathering of the hood. Then trying to make the lining fit into the garment. But I was using a slippery velvet material. The pattern was pretty clear. I will make another one in a basic fabric, love the design.
Difficult....made out of velvet and was extremely hard to gather and did not turn out well in my opinion will have to tweak pattern if I make again...I did make 3 but not impressed with outcome.
This cape was easy to put together and it came out wonderful. I well be making a few more for my nieces.
