I get the occasional odd look from people from time to time, but more often, people tell me how neat it is and ask me where I got it. Apparently, these are regularly sold at Renaissance Faires, but not that many people run to the grocery store wearing one. Tee Hee. Maybe I'll start a new trend.
I want a new cloak for this year, because last year's cloak was really a trial run, I didn't expect to like it as much as I do, and the fabric I used wasn't the best quality. I'm still looking for the perfect fabric, though if I don't get moving soon, it'll be too late to bother.
I do have fabric for a girls' cloak, though. Some lovely bubblegum pink wool melton that is surprisingly soft to the touch for melton. I'm looking for some pretty ribbon trim to make all that plain pink into something quite pretty, so as soon as I find that I'll be making a girls' cloak.
I don't have a pattern for a girls' cloak, but I'm thinking it's not much different from the Handkerchief Dress.
