hoods are dead easy, honest; once you have the neck hole and the hood the same size as each other. Or if the hood is slightly bigger than the neckhole just pleat it in.

Apparently, if the width of the cloth is enough to cover the drop from your shoulder to your ankle, you draw a semi-circle on it, cut it out and hem it. Then call it a cloak.

razors, which looked like carving knives and perhaps substituted for them at need, This could actually be correct (by accident naturally), didn't all the household manuals tell you to keep your carving knives REALLY sharp so you could cut the meat properly? You probably could shave with one :shock:...
