I bought this cloak in a charity shop locally, the colour is a vivid green, and the wool is a mid weight tweed. I think it was originally a cloak used in a primary school play or float for St Patrick. (Irelands patron saint) as it was made for someone slightly smaller than me. Some time ago I had up-cycled (well not really as it didnt really up) another cloak unsuccessfully to a jacket, where is should have worked with the cut of cloth I had, and used kimono sleeves, so at least l learned from the experience when I went to make this one. Incredibly easy, its a reversible (if desired) coat, but I just lined it, changed the length, and pocket style. I am thinking I may use a hook eye close at top or make a decorative frog (?) but have not decided. Coat very comfortable and very wearable as is, so no hurry!
