I am making a bridal cape for my daughters wedding which is next month. I would like to make the hood detachable but am not real sure how to go about it. The cape is fleece lined with flannel. I made it out of those fabrics as her soon to be husband said she was not to change out of her gown or take anything off till they got to their wedding night destination. I wanted her to be warm since it will be a three hour drive and who knows just how cold it may be. She has no idea I am making the cape for her. This is the a miracle she is still here as she had breast cancer this year, chemo,6 surgeries and all the while raising two daughters and working full time. I just want this time to be the best for her as we are not certain how long she has. I can’t do much but maybe keeping her warm will make her day very special. I wish I could be there on her special day to see her shine and be the radiant bride I know she will be. But it is just not financially possible and we live several states apart. I am sorry to carry on like this but living alone I have no one to talk to. I hope someone can give me an idea of how to make the detachable hood. It would be easier if I did not have the bulk of the fabrics. I am sort of using a pattern of a halloween cape so am doing some things a little different. Thanks for listening and for any ideas you may have.
