Pattern: Slim Cloak by eqos Pattern: Slim Cloak by eqos
This does not have a wide billowy body, but hey, it's only 2.5 yards so that's awesome, right?

Hello! I am using your pattern as a basis for something similar and I am curious what the 2" and 3" grey parts of the pattern are for?

The gray parts are waste fabric. The numbers I put in there as measuring points. (You measure 3" in to make the slant of the whole body piece, and then another 2" at the top for the armhole curve.) Hope that makes sense.

I'm going to make this for my son to wear. What type of fabric did you use for the cloak and lining and where did you find 60" wide fabric? I'm probably going to make it longer so should I buy more fabric? Thanks for the free pattern. I appreciate it. If it turns out good I'll have him post a picture of it for you. Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply... The outer fabric for this in denim, and the inner fabric is some random stuff I found that's half cotton, half metallic. (both are woven fabrics). 60" wide fabric is a standard width for bolt fabrics in the US, so you'll be able to find that size at any craft store. And yes, you will have to buy more fabric if you want to make it longer. Good luck! Hope this reply isn't too late for you.

what is the "gores" part????

They are triangles that you can put either at the bottom of the side seams to make the body fuller, or in the sleeve seams to make a belled sleeve, or at the top of the hood to make it pointed.

It's okay, gores aren't used in most modern patterns.

If you want billowy, buy an extra yard or two and turn the front/back sideways. Leave shoulder points as-is, and adjust bottom points for extra billowy. *grin*

Where do the hood pieces get sewn together?
Reply

eqos Featured By Owner May 3, 2013   Artisan Crafter
You have the 2 pieces, lay them on top of each other, and sew together the top edge and one of the side edges.

I love that you include the sizes of the negative space so we can calculate and draw our own without having to print and trace. Can you tell me the best way to go about figuring out the scye slope on the sleeve? And gores go in the body of the jacket to give it some extra fullness, right?

eqos Featured By Owner May 3, 2013   Artisan Crafter
Being able to draw it instead of tracing was exactly the idea behind these patterns!

For the scye curve, well, I don't do it very mathematically. I just draw by eye and aim for it to be a pretty shallow S-curve, because I've found that sleeves are more comfortable that way.

The gores are not very big, which makes them ambiguous. For the cloak pictured here, I sewed them together and put them in the side seams (4 pieces making 2 gores); but another option is to put them in the sleeves for dramatic flared sleeves.

Ah, I see, I didnt even think about putting them into the sleeves. :D Pretty cool, thanks.

Arm scye curves are my bane. lol

No, it's 2.5 yards of 60" wide fabric. The layout has the fabric folded in half with the selvedges together.

The gores are triangular pieces (as you can see) that are used to add fullness. The gores on this pattern are very small compared to how I usually make them. They can be different sizes and can be put on different parts of the pattern. In this case, you can put them in the side seams at the bottom for a larger hem, or you can put them in the sleeves to make the sleeves flared.
