The kids dressed up as superheroes for Halloween. I figured it would be easy since they already had capes, but my son’s was in black satin brocade with gold trim. Not quite superhero like. So I made a trip to the fabric store and bought 1 m piece of red knit fabric . It came in a tube. I debated separating it and making it one layer, but decided to leave it with two layers and I find it has a nice weight to it. In a separate trip to Walmart, I bought black bias tape since I forgot to bring a small piece of fabric to match with and I figured it was better to contrast with black than pick a bad match in red (they had a really poor selection anyways, Walmart in Canada has been phasing out the fabric departments over the past couple of years). I gathered the top, added the bias tape and found it to be still too wide at the top, so I folded the sides inward and added velcro for the closure.
I would have posted pics while worn, but I couldn’t get my son to stay still long enough for a decent picture!
1m knit material from the bargain bin (no other info on it), bias tape, about 2" hook and eye tape
