What is the difference between a cape and a cloak?
Capes Tend to be Shorter; Cloaks are Full-Length or Calf Length. So those flappy things super heros wear are capes. Capes also don’t have hoods most of the time and they don’t necessarily close in the front. Cloaks, on the other hand, fall to below to the knees and are often floor length.
How much fabric do I need to make a cape?
What You’ll Need. 1-2 yards of fabric (depending on how long you’d like it), any color of your choice. Bolts of the fabric have different widths, though, so the wider your bolt of fabric, the more flow the cape will have. I advise visiting Amazon.com, where they now cut and deliver fabric right to your door.
