I thought that I had plenty of the burgundy wool to make the Clarice bodice, sleeves, split front skirt and a cloak. Well.....as, I discovered when I cut out the skirt...I was so wrong! And since I bought the fabric several years ago on clearance getting more was not an option. Time for a new plan. I decided to use a compass rose design with spokes to designate the 4 cardinal directions - North, South, East, West - and 4 more spokes to designate the NE, ....I cut the pattern out of an a piece of moth eaten wool as a base that will not be seen when the cloak is complete. Then I basted eight wedges of the burgundy wool around the hem of the base fabric.
