Can anyone help me find a simple hooded cloak (like a grin reaper style cloak) tutorial with pictures to help me figure out what to do?  My son wants to be the "Red Death" from the Edgar Allen Poe story - and has asked me to sew a full length red cloak and he plans to use facepaint to make his face look like a skull (which should be only peeking out from a big hood).  I have searched and searched and there are a ton of tutorials without any pictures - and I've searched youtube too. Can anyone point me in the right direction?  I'm hoping the pattern will mostly have rectangles and very simple construction.

This is a very easy pattern to do.

If you can find the fabric wide enough then you would not have to worry about piecing anything.  Don't know how tall your son is to give any further details on that.
