Step 1: Make the outer cloak
2 valances - $2.00
Cut the valances in half, sew the valance tops together on 2 of the pieces. (see image2). Fold the ends in (image2) and sew the tops (Image3). The sewn tops will be the shoulders of the cloak.
These particular valances had a silky edge band running along the bottom edge. This is depicted by the darker brown stripe on the following images.
Step 2: Make the outer cloak's sleeves
Cut slits from the shoulder area of the cloak body, making sure to make the slits the same length as the sleeves. Sew the sleeves to the cloak body.
Step 3: The finished outer cloak
I decided to use drawings because there was just too much fabric balled up that it would have been difficult to make you, the viewer, understand what was going on.
On to the Inner robe.....
