The Apprentice Cloak is inspired by the cloak worn by Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones. This is the most accurate recreation anywhere on the 'net. The Mad Seamstress designed this original pattern from notes and pictures taken during a museum exhibit visit in her town. Now The Mystik Seamstress has updated the pattern using production stills and high def screenshots. Same great look, slightly different construction.
The Apprentice Cloak has two full back and side panels, an extra large sized hood (even longer than the Master's Robe!), and two lined and pressed tabards for the front. This isn't just a regular cape with slits cut up the sides. This is a fully realized, tailored piece that uses more fabric and construction time than our Master's Robes.
Because the original was designed for someone with a tall, lean frame it may not hang quite as well on the more stalwart warriors. Our updated design can easily accommodate a shoulder width of up to 23 inches (58 cm) with ease. We are hoping in the future to develop a modified design to fit the stoutest of customers.
It is constructed from the same bottom weight poly/cotton twill as Master's Robes making it a robust garment with great drape, endurance, washability, AND it's wrinkle resistant.
The majority of the seams are turned under and sewn flat for extra durability and a great finished look. Sturdy like a solid pair of jeans that will last you for many years.
Standard color choices are Brown or Black. If you are interested in another color, feel free to contact us.
Costume suggestions: Anakin Skywalker from Attack of the Clones, and many others.
