Mistcloak Construction


Using strips of suedecloth, I started layering the strips to form the back of the cloak, then I sewed them together keeping the stitches underneath where the strips overlap so the stitches are not visible on the outside.


After finishing the back I added more strips around the shoulders and front, layering them symmetrically on both sides before attaching the hood.
For the hood I just made a basic Jedi hood and sized it down a bit.
Once everything was constructed I trimmed the ends and cut the ends like tapered curves because I thought that looked more like mist than a blunt squared edge.

  1. Is there any chance you would ever do this as a commission?

  2. Right now I'm not doing commissions but I wouldn't rule it out for the future. Currrently I don't even have a PayPal account, haha! For this particular cloak, it involved a lot of hand-stitching, which is time-consuming. If I ever make a mistcloak to sell I would need to change the design to make it faster to make so I wouldn't have to charge for too many hours of labor.
