So I made the cloak like a long vest. I cut the felt into three long pieces. The middle on was about the width of the black shirt I used for the top of the dress. I added a couple of inches to the sides to make it a little wider. Then the sides were roughly half of the middle (a little more). I cut arm holes in all of the pieces.
Now for the flappy thing, not sure what to call it. I cut it into a half circle but ended up cutting the straight part (that’s the part that goes on the neck) more curved. I then sewed this onto the cloak and and then cut away at the felt to shape it a little better so it would lay flat when I put it on.
My favorite parts are the painted flowers, I just love them and they really add to the costume.
I put a blue shirt underneath the black top and then added some black boots. Most likely this is how I will be wearing the costume while trick or treating, the cloak is really warm. No wonder Anna could survive the snow, it’s a warm costume!
And here it is with the cloak. Either way it is super fun and I can’t wait to be dressed up with my little girl and son!
