Step 1: Procure Your Fabric

I bought an old curtain a while back.

The fabric was gorgeous and it has a lot of seams and hems in already which makes it far easier to work with which is why I would recommend using an old curtain for this.

You need something a little thicker that has a bit of weight and a nice pattern and shine if you wish.

I initially cut this to create a cape, but I misjudged it and it didn't work out. meaning I had to sew pieces back together so that I could make the back,
