Thyme's Twist Cloak by Durnesque Thyme's Twist Cloak by Durnesque
Another twisted front cloak! This is becoming a much requested design, which is nice because I'm able to work on perfecting the design, though also slightly boring.

This one is for another Renaissance Festival cast member- Rosemary Thyme, the apothecary and herbalist! She's very punny.

The cloak is a custom design, no pattern used. Winter weight (suedecloth and cotton), completely reversible, and knee length.

See it and other pieces in greater detail on my Facebook page: Sarah's Stache
You'll also be able to see happy customers wearing them! Please note me here or through my Facebook page if you would like to commission a cloak! I offer very reasonable prices and am happy to work with budgets as much as possible!

:star: Oh my goodness... this piece made the front page! Thank you all so much for your kind attention! I so appreciate it! :star:

Yup! :D Like those wonderful Victorian gowns that had one bodice for day and one for evening, except not really... :P But yeah, they are exceedingly useful.

It's an original design and trademark for my business, so I'm sorry, but I can't really go into details. But I'm glad you seem impressed!

Is there a pattern you use for these? I've been looking to start making these types of things for a while now.....
Reply
:icondurnesque:
Durnesque Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013  Student General Artist
No, I'm sorry. I don't really use any pattern, though I'll occasionally use a skirt pattern just to help with hem curves when cutting. I usually begin with a sketch though, which helps me figure out the shapes I need to cut.

The reason I ask is because I'm HORRIBLE at freecutting material.

Well, there are plenty of cloak patterns out there if you'd rather use one. And you can catch some great sales at places like Jo-ann Fabrics and Hancock Fabrics: sometimes different brands of sewing patterns go for $1-2.

I've found though that you just can't be afraid of cutting! Sometimes you make mistakes and it's ok! If you need a pattern, but want a custom design, you can always make a test pattern out of muslin first. If it works, take it apart and use that as the pattern on the fabric you really want to use. Can be a bit pricey though, but then you always have your custom pattern pieces.

yeah. I'm just starting out and it HAS been a good while since I've done all his. ^^ this is why I asked about the pattern. I have to get used to doing it again. (like riding a bicycle.... right....)

The brown is a psuedo-suedecloth and the green is a cotton. :)

I am commissionable and would be happy to make a similar one! This one cost $70, so you have an idea of cost, but prices vary upon fabrics and sales.

I think I may have to commission you.

Thank you! I will note, I got some fabulous sales so even a duplicate is likely to cost a bit more, but yeah, that's the general price.
