Fleece Long Hooded Cloak Pattern Instructions

  1. You will need to assemble the pattern. For instructions on how to assemble the pattern see link above (or click here).

  2. Cut out the pieces to the cape- To save you from endless pattern assembly the cape pattern piece doubles as the back piece and the front pieces (yay for saving trees). However, this means that you need to do a couple of different things when you cut out the pattern.

    I’ve sewn for 2 decades and have never come across a design like this = so even if you’re a seasoned sewist you need to pay attention.

  3. Each pattern piece is actually 2 pattern pieces – you will cut down the pieces to make it the next pattern piece ( for example you will cut out the exterior of the hood, cut down the pattern piece, and then cut the interior).

  4. Cape section: Cut the pattern to the length you want (there are two – I’m 5'4" and the shorter length was good for me).

  5. Cut 1 of the back piece – place the pattern piece with the BLUE line on the fold. There will be a lip of paper (.5 inches) that hangs over the edge of the fabric. This will make 1 large back piece. Now Cut the pattern piece to become the front piece. Cut on the red lines at the neck, and at the bottom (curve up so you don’t trip on the cape).

    Then place on the folded fabric making sure the ENTIRE pattern is on the fabric (no paper lip hanging over). Cut out pattern making two pieces for the front. Note: to conserve fabric, I turned the pattern around – this might not work with some patterns.

  6. Cut out the hood- On doubled Fabric, cut two of the hood exterior. Then cut down the pattern piece on the red line. On doubled fabric cut two of the hood lining.
