I've had a table cloth mom gave me that I had planned to make a cape with, and I also just bought some pretty curtain like material at Savers. I found this amazing pattern on line here. I made two capes out of two very different fabrics, an over cape and an under cape. But they can be worn by them selves because they aren't attached. The top one is more elegant, with a fancier clasp. The under cape is much more rustic and woodsman looking.
