After cutting the whole thing out I started sewing. I used black thread on both the sewing machine and the serger. I folded both sides under on the tie to finish the edges. After sewing all the seams, I then serged everything to give it a nice finished look. Then I sewed the hem and put the tie on. After ironing everything, I have a beautiful purple cloak.

I found this beautiful purple fabric the other day at the fabric store. It is a gorgeous shade of regal purple.
