I am surprised there is not tutorial in the soft parts templates for the cape. This is one part of the costume that no one seams to give much thought to. As I am researching the cape, the one thing that strikes me is that I have yet to see a fan cape that drapes like the original. I, like others, am of the belief that the ESB cape was part of a blanket.
I picked up an old wool blanket that I recently cut and dyed. It drapes like the real thing and just seams more correct. I will post a picture soon, but I have notice that the ESB cape appears to have seams. One running across the stripe. one on the leading edge and one that appears to make a shaped shoulder. Check out the picture. Thoughts?
