My cloak is made from mccall 8937.The front is close with two buttons (for decoration)and a cord.I did not use the hood from the pattern and make my own because I don't like it and for me , it's too big and did not stay in place.
The fabric is two layers of polar and a cheap lining.It's very warm.Basically it wasn't suppose to be an heavy(because yes it is) cloak but only a single layer of polar.
When I buy the fabric , which was on sold , I didn't realize everything it touch , it leave tiny fibre on it.After I pay , my mom told me to look at my t-shirt.From white it has become black.
Because the fabric was on sold , I buy more then I need , enough to make two layers for the cloak.In any case , I do not wish to use it for something else.After , I buy a cheap lining to be sure none of my clothing will be hairy.
The lesson to learn from that : being carefull when buying polar , it could be tricky.
