  • Step 1

    The measurements on the attachment are approximate, the ones I made for my 5 ft 6 brother, so I recommend making a paper pattern just to double check before you cut anything out of the fabric.
    I bought 3 meters of the red fabric and 1 meter of the yellow.
    I cut out 3 3in yellow strips, and 2 2in yellow strips.

  • Step 2

    If the sleeves are a little short, you will be adding about 2inches of yellow fabric to them so don't worry, same with the hem at the bottom, there will be an extra 2 inches.

    Then fold the red fabric in half top to bottom. Then in half side to side. Cut out the 'cloak' pattern.
    The neck hole will need to be cut out afterwards, You can cut it any size you want but I went for a circle approximately 5 inches diameter, but that was because I had a stretchy fabric.

    Cut out the 'cowl' circle and hood, checking with a paper pattern if the hole is the right size, You want to place it slightly overlapping the centre of the cowl.

    Cut out the hood from the red fabric aswell, making sure the fold line is in the right place, The left hand straight edge is the opening of the cowl, so make sure its straight!

  • Step 3

    I sewed a 2 inch yellow strip around the neckhole so seal the edges but you can just do a zigzag stitch around the edge if you want, it wont be visible.

    Fold over your wider yellow strips, and stitch , finishing the edges off.
    Stitch, one long strip, to the front of the cloak, using two strips if necessary, as the long diagonal across the cloak placing as you see fit. Then put the other shorter diagonal strip on from the shoulder to the crossover point about where you want the belt to sit.

    Sew up the arms and side of the cloak.

  • Step 4

    Sew up the hood, along the long diagonal edge.

    Stitch the cowl to the hood, around the neck line, gathering if necessary.

    Sew a yellow strip to the outside of the cowl and the the outside of the hood.

    Your cowl is now finished!
