    Now I'm not trying to revive this area of Chicago Force as I have no absolutely no skill in this area but my fiance who does has said she'd make me a jedi cloak. So in order to make this happen I need help.

    So could someone provide me with where I could find a pattern and what materials should be used? Really could someone point me in the right direction to find everything I would need to give to her to make this happen? Plus, any tips and tricks would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    I have used this pattern from Simplicity...still available...

    http://www.simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=9887

    I make the hood much larger...
    and remove the yoke detail by taping the pattern pieces together before cutting the fabric..

    Fabric...
    Wool is preferred...

    Other fabrics...
    just stay with natural fibers like cotton and linen...
    avoid polyester...
