I’ve made three Kinsale cloaks!  They’re all available in my Etsy shop and one of a kind.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/252951929/handmade-irish-satin-and-vintage-cotton

At one point the Kinsale cloak was common in Ireland.  Many mothers would often make such a cloak for their daughters as a wedding gift so these were often treasured.  They were extremely popular in the 1700s.

When the Irish potato famine struck the cloak fell out of fashion and was replaced with shawls that were often associated with Irish immigrants.

The three cloaks are fully lined in satin and are closed with a metal cloak clasp.  They’re fairly loose so they’ll fit 18 inch dolls and can probably fit smaller dolls comfortably.

The hood is adjustable with the ribbon on hood so it can be let down or tied tightly.  I think in the future I’d want to make the hood detachable via clear snaps.
