I am looking for a full-length hooded cloak pattern with a train....one that will work well sewn in velvet with satin lining.

Thanks in advance!

Simplicity's costume line has a beautiful hooded cloak pattern, and it would be very easy to add a train to it, depending on the shape you want the train to be.  Really, just add the length of your desired train to the center back, and then find your sides (in line with your shoulders) and make a smooth curve from one point up to the other.  You can tape additional paper to the pattern paper to make the addition.

I made view C of this one:

It was really easy, but I had to cut it on the floor because the pattern pieces are HUUUUGE! It fits really nicely, too, because of the separate front and back pieces with shaping at the shoulder.

Thats the only one I've found that I like so far. It wouldn't be too tough to add a train on?

The cloak I really want for the occasion is here: http://customcloaks.com/wedding_cloaks.html
A friend offered to sew my wedding attire for me, so I want to find a pattern for a similar one with a train and maybe an oversized hood.
