I drew up this pattern for a local meetup.com sewing workshop. It is for a cloak, optionally with a hood, in sizes XS-S (32,34), M (36,38,40), and L-XL (42,44,46,48). You can vary the length to suit: you can make it hip length, thigh length, or floor length, or any length you want.
Note 1: this pattern is unisex, but it is denoted as for women ’cause burdastyle is kinda dumb that way. :)
Note 2: this pattern is seasonless but is denoted as “Fall” ‘cause that’s when Halloween is, plus burdastyle made me select a season.
Note 3: all pattern pieces are labeled with the same name: this project’s title! Here’s what they’re supposed to be:
#1 Cloak, sizes XS-S (32,34), M (36,38,40), L-XL (42,44,46,48)
#2 Hood, size XS-S (32,34), M (36,38,40), L-XL (42,44,46,48)
Note 4: I’m including fabric yardage requirements here, ‘cause even though I did have to enter yardage requirements when adding the patterns, I don’t see the yardage requirements anywhere in the project.
