Buy the 207 Unisex Kinsale Cloak sewing pattern from Folkwear. This voluminous full-length cloak is based on those worn by the rural Irish for centuries. Lined and hand gathered into a wide collar, it falls in small unpressed pleats to a gracefully curved hem. The cloak fastens at the neck with a large hook and eye. There is an optional detachable hood that buttons to the cloak under the collar. It may be worn down over the shoulders as an overcape, or pulled up and fitted over the head with ties as a loosely fitted hood.
