Guys! This beauty wont even fit into frame! 🙀Sorry for the photo dump, but Im not tall enough to get into full frame 😹
Patterning out this bad boy was INTENSE. Tons of research photos and squinting real hard to figure this thing out. I used my pattern making paper, and laid it out and drew up my best interpretation of the cloak. Its not symmetrical at all, and the piping kind of swooped? to one side. It only covers one shoulder which was hard to wrap my brain around, but after a few *think think think* moments, I felt confident enough to try out a pattern. I cut out all my pattern pieces from there and crossed my fingers. 🤞🏼
FABRIC. I used some primo fabric from Fabric Depot to try and match the slight textured fabric that most of the MCU Cloak is made out of. Actual velvet was slightly out of my price range, so I improvised! And you know what? Thats okay! I didn't feel like my cloak was inferior because I didn't make it out of high quality velvet like from the movie. You know what I made it out of? My own personal tablecloth and some red curtains from a thrift store. Boom. 🤜🏼🤛🏼
I love it. It has a personal touch that I love. The piping was flannel wrapped around cotton rope and it was so satisfying to see that pop of dimension come out. It really made it come together!
The tall neck on the cloak was another puzzle to solve. I decided to not do the couched fabric, but instead added the lace to create a similar effect. All the small pattern pieces really made want to pull my hair out, but I prevailed!
