I made a prototype of a doll sized Kinsale cloak.  Kinsale cloaks were common in Ireland and are sometimes still worn.  Quite often mothers would make a Kinsale cloak as a wedding gift for their daughters.  When the Irish potato famine happened many women switched to wearing shawls but you can still occasionally see them being worn.
