Warm and comfy cloak!
I'm making cloaks for me and a few of my friends for the Renaissance Faire.
For this project I used about 2yds of wool fabric. I would say I spent around 35$ on it. Fabric was about 25$ total (I was required to buy the rest on the bolt) and my clasp was a little pricey. The price will vary depending on what you want and where you get it. yada yada :)
I haven't tried making the cloak with thinner fabric so I don't know how it would turn out. I'd love to see if you give it a try!!

First thing you want to do is to make your fabric the width you want.
I made my cloak 67in wide (66in after I hemmed). 63in is good if you don't want the front of the cloak to cover you as much.
Lay your fabric out flat. Take your yard stick/ruler and place it about 3in in from the cut edge of the fabric. Now measure your 67in and mark it on BOTH selvages. So you'll measure on the top of the fabric too.
Next, you're going to draw a straight line down connecting the two marks you just made. This will be your cutting line.
Before you cut on your line, you're going to repeat Step 1 going the opposite way, but measure 67in from the line you made and NOT the cut edge.
After you make your second line you can cut both sides off.
Almost done! Now put the cloak back on and pin where you want the bottom of the cloak to end. Add 5/8ths onto that for your hem line.
This part might be a bit easier with some help.
