I would like to make a capelet with this pattern. What do you suggest?

I'm extremely new to sewing so I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question, but how do I attach the gores together without a seam allowance? Is there a specific stitch I should be using? Thanks!

Thanks so much for this! I cut the pattern to 3/4 size (gores were 9" and 18" wide by 42" long) and it fit my 4 year old perfectly. Even greater challenge - she loved it!
The project is actually a winter cloak. I used fleece for the outer layer, and lined it with faux fur. To make a fur trim, I extended the wide ends of the gores by 5 inches and left them as rectangles, then folded them over the end of the fleece layer.
I'll add a picture soon. (Edit: Apparently I need to be a premium member to add a picture. :( (Sad) )
But I can do this: larynchillbreeze.deviantart.co…

And my Amtgard chapter loved it so much they asked me to teach the technique. Of course you're getting credit! This page is showing on my screen for the duration of the class.
THANK YOU for the wonderful patterns!

No, it drapes open in the front a bit.

It should, but it depends on the wearer. Obviously large or busty people might not be able to close it around them. Most should be able to close it, though.

Just wanted to let you know that this makes an excellent skirt pattern, too, and with just 2 yards of fabric.

Stitch the triangles together as you would for the cloak, use the math for a half-circle skirt to cut out the waist, attach some elastic or a waistband, and you're done!

I made one out of some lovely batik fabric and it's now my favorite skirt.

I am planning to use a heavy wool fabric for this, any tips?

I think a heavy wool would work well for this!

I like this, it looks like it's a good pattern, but my trouble is putting it together. Err, what goes where? :anxious: Because I'm assuming that I shouldn't sew it together all zigzaggy.

It is pretty easy. You sew all the triangles together with the points all together at the top. It will basically make a big triangle with a curved bottom. Cut the top off the triangle so that it is flat, and about 15"-20" across the top (this is for the neckhole, you can curve it if you want). Sew the hood pieces together along the long edges so it makes a fat rectangle, then fold it in half and sew the top edge together. Then sew the bottom edge of the head to the neckhole, pleating it to make it fit.

Actually I forgot, this pattern makes a half-circle with all the gores together, not a triangle. So you do have to curve the neck hole.
