Anyhow, the cape. I did not want a superhero cape. Or costume cape. As you can see here, what I ended up making for him could be called: "Lumberjack meets Robin Hood" or "Zoro Rides in Appalachia." Or something.
I really liked the cape pattern in a Japanese sewing pattern book, of all things, that I found online. The rest of the book hooked me in, as well, so I bought it.
The only problem is, that it's in Japanese. I don't even know the name of my pattern book. There is a small niche of enthusiastic fans of Japanese pattern books, and I'm afraid that I've joined the ranks.
