Shower Curtain Cape


Now that I have the shower curtains, I need to make a cape emoticon
I found a picture of the Hot Toys Dark Knight cape, and thought I would try something like that.
Basically, I would just have to cut the shape onto one curtain, then copy it on the next and sew it up the middle (like Shabaaz mentioned). Before I start cutting curtains up, What do you think?
Here's one half...

Two halves joined...

Re: Cape Pattern Idea


I like it, but I'd bring the middle of the cape to a point for the "bat tail" effect.

Re: Cape Pattern Idea


Here's a look at the material. As Shabaaz mentioned, it's like faux suede on the outside, and satin on the inner aspect.

I've outlined the basic shape with string. The 'points' of the scallops wil be more defined when I draw the shape onto the material.

Re: Cape Pattern Idea


It's kind of hard to see, but I've drawn the pattern onto the material with white pencil crayon. I know it's not perfect. I'm hoping to get a seamstress to sew it together tomorrow. (my friend with the sewing machine is in Florida for 2 weeks). Feel free to comment or if you have any suggestions before I take some scissors to it, that would be awesomeemoticon

That's looking pretty good. Be cool to see how it ends up looking on your outfit.

Re: Cape Pattern Idea


Thanks. Got the shower curtain idea from shabaaz. It's really light-weight, and flows well, and yup, it won't get water-logged if it rains. Not sure of the pattern I've done, but we'll see. It's better than the cheap Rubies one I have. Anyway, It's at the seemstress as of this morning. I'll have it back on Wednesday and can post a pic then.
