Capes and Cloaks

Postby silverfish » Thu Jan 26, 2017 1:38 pm

So after a few years I have decided that for staying cool in the daytime that a metallic fabric cape or cloak is the ultimate accessory. A quick trip to the fabric store, 10 minutes of sewing and walla! Wind passes through easily, and you can turn it any direction you want to block the sun. It also looks epic in the wind.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

I have a cloak make out of polar fleece that is one of my favourite night-time accessories. Keeps the heat in really nicely and can be used as a blanket.

I was thinking of making a daytime one as well, but I was considering a light silk. I'd be interested to know how the metallic fabric works.
