My medieval-style cloak with a hood has been available here, on ChellyWood.com, for a long time, but only as a JPG image, never as a PDF. Today I’m converting that pattern to a PDF format, for easy download.
The tutorial video, showing how to make the cloak, is one of the earliest ones from my YouTube channel, so please excuse the simplicity of it.
The dress pattern is one you’ve seen before. It’s my basic wedding dress project, but for today’s everyday dress, I used a wine-colored fabric. Any solid-colored cotton fabric will do. You’ll also need a few size 4/0 Dritz snaps to make the dress, and there’s an optional petticoat, which you can create using tulle or lace.
My cape with a hood uses solid-colored grey flannel fabric on the outside (for that fuzzy look that keeps my doll looking all cozy-warm) and plain white cotton fabric for the lining.
I used a little lace trim around the collar of my medieval cloak, and this link will take you to a toggle clasp like the one I used.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
