This has been in my mind for about three years and we're close to finishing the project. I would have been nowhere without Marion, our head cutter at NEW TAILOR. Last weekend, we finished the pattern. As you can see in Sunday's post we are still in doubt whether to opt for a 'normal' collar (high rise) or a hood (Oliver Queen style).
Top picture show neckline and shoulder construction pattern. As you can see, the shoulde will have several 'parts', allowing a better balance in the cape all together.
Cutting the pattern. The tape shows that for this size a cloak, the pattern paper is slightly too small, so we needed to glue it together.
Scissors and an antique iron device we have currently employed as a paper weight.
High end action on the shoulder cuttin'.
Marion and the first half of the cape!
