I wanted to make something easy, that I could sell at larp battles. And from canvas, not velvet:-D
Well, I bought some black and red cotton canvas and here we go.
I cut out the pattern. Once from each colour.
I added gores to the shoulder slits and sewed the center-front and center-back seams.
I could press the seam allowances but I had to trim them at the curves.
I sewed the two hoods together at the lower edge. I sewed right side to right side.
I also sewed the seam allowances at the tip of the liripipe together. For easy changing of the colour of the hood:-)
I folded a cm at the face edges in and ironed.
I basted the edges and sewed together at two milimeters from the edge. I ironed the lower hem and sewed this way as well.
