A must to have

Any people who like medieval fantasy or doing live roleplaying game need a cloak.You will be able to find a lot of pattern depending of your need and amount of fabric you are ready to use.

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.
