This started with Duckie can you make me a cape just like Disney Jedi training academy. Sure I say.
So I grabbed a boys shirt pattern and drew the sleeves straight and of course made it longer. I added a facing to the pattern so I did not have sew that on later. Then I grabbed a Kwik Sew pattern which had a hood and traced that out making sure that I made note of the SA which was different than the shirt pattern [and also that the neckline was going to fit].
The cloak is together now and I am wondering can I attach the hood and later from hem over the head to hem turn back and stitch down that facing which would be the quick answer.
OR do I turn back the hood's facing and stitch it now; attach the hood; and then do that magic turn the facing stitch and turn out thing to both sides.
Is there a reason this is done is three steps? And if so, remembering that this is essentially a Halloween costume, does it matter if I do it the quick way? Will the 6 year old feel the difference?
