Just cut everything into sqaures and rectangles, and add long strips if you need to--if you do panels that are 15 x however long, then sew those panels together it's much easier. Don't complicate things for yourself by trying to match edges of uneven shapes. :>

It's sort of a combination---fitted at the shoulders, but flaring out more so that it's about 3/4 of a circle. The hood was just hit and miss for sizing--i find mosty patterns don't make them deep enough or "tall" enough. The trick to piecing that much is to make panels of yardage up first of your patchwork, sew them into a piece big enough for your pattern, then cut out the shape--you'd drive yourself crazy piecing to make the shape!  Another trick is to make a bunch of panels with larger pieces, then cut them up and sew them back together alternating--looks like lots of intricate pieces then! I used squares as small as 3" and chunks as big as 2 feet by 3 feet. I found a cotton bedspread/couch cover that i used for the lining--warm, easy to sew, cheap and big enough. Hope this helps---and enjoy yourself!! The weight is such that it is VERY warm, great for extra bedding while camping if you're in the SCA.
