Confessions of a Seamstress was an invaluable resource in figuring out how to make my own replica of Ruby's cloak from Once Upon a Time. She tracked down the original fabrics and helped me to find my own so I could have a wonderful and authentic cloak. The fabric is indescribably beautiful. I couldn't have made this without you, I love it! Thank you so much!
One of the biggest challenges I faced with this project was the bottom of the cloak. Ruby's cloak has a design which is a combination of different fabrics and such at the bottom. Trying to replicate that design, put the pieces together to achieve the look that I wanted and not lose the shape of the cloak was difficult.
Incidentally, back in December I also finally made a version of the cloak with the three tiers on the bottom. The results were really cool and I'll be sharing them soon, but they require a lot more labor and if anyone wants this version of the cloak, they will need to be prepared to pay more.
