I am looking for a pattern for a velvet wedding cloak - it needs to have a hood and a train, but otherwise I don't particularly mind the style. (I don't mind what length train, as I'm happy to alter the pattern if it's too short or long.)

Can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable paper pattern to buy, or else instructions to make my own pattern?

Thank you!

Check out Simplicity 5794. It would be easy to add the train to the length.

This makes me ! I was married in January of 1977, just before one of the worst blizzards northeast Ohio ever had. I was so happy to have my hooded velvet cloak (with train). My mother made both dress and cloak. 2 days before the wedding, the cloak was still in process. She laid one of the huge pieces against the direction of the velvet at 9:30 p.m. She ran to the fabric store and persuaded the person who was closing to open up so she could get the fabric!

Long story short - double check the nap when you lay it out!

Best of luck with your lovely project. I want to see pictures.

Thank you to everyone for the ideas - I am sure I can use one of these patterns. And I do like the dress that goes with the Butterick pattern.

I have been busy all summer and not had time to think much about the wedding (which is not until early 2014) - except that I now know I want to make lots of cloaks! Maybe as many as 8 of them! A long one with a train for myself, fairly long (perhaps calf-length) for adult bridesmaids, and shorter ones for little girls (including my daughter, who will be 5 years old by then). And I'm thinking of the deep jewel colours: dark green, crimson, navy blue and deep purple. One adult and one child of each colour, each is a mother and daughter. Definitely green for me - always my favourite colour. :-)
