Turn the piece inside out, and you have a long shirt like piece. Sew the piece onto your character, slipping it's arms through the sleeves. Sew the front of the shirt shut. Take the half circle type thing and sew the ends to the front of the robe. Keep it so that the hood lines the top of the robe.
