Instructables
I needed my costume by the 20th this year, and my original costume plans were way to grandeur to complete in one weekend. I went as Finn, from Adventure Time last year, so I figured I would just give my costume an update. I really liked the episode "Finn the Wizard" and the cloak ("dress") he wears throughout the episode seemed like an easy addition to wear over my previous costume.

The pattern making and assembly for the whole thing took about 4-5 hours. Making the pattern was the hardest and most time consuming part, so it shouldn't be too hard.

Step 1: Materials

You'll need a few things to complete the project:
  • Measuring Tape
  • Marker
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pins
  • Thread
  • Purple Fabric (3.5 Yard Minimum)
  • Yellow fabric (8 Inch Square)
I got my fabric from Joann, which was a micro fleece, and used a 50% off coupon from their smartphone app. In total, the whole project cost me 20 dollars.

Step 2: The Pattern

The pattern is adjustable for your height. I'm somewhere around 5' 8", and the measurement from the top of my shoulders to the ground is 56 inches. Anyone shorter than me can just adjust the size later, when you hem the bottom of the cloak, but for anyone taller you'll need to tack on extra inches to the long vertical measurements in the pattern. You'll also need to get more than 3.5 yards of fabric. Mine BARELY fit on the 3.5 yards I got.

The hood and sleeves should be left alone, as they will fit almost any body type.

Also, it's important to note that the only "full size" object in the pattern is the star, and that I've taken into consideration room for seams with the measurements given on the pattern. You'll also notice grayed out sections on the pattern. This is an opportunity for you to fold your fabric in half while you cut out the shape (making it more symmetrical, and easier).
