No really.
Thank you.


Do you want a circle cloak type thing or just a superman style cape?

I really like magnetic purse clasps for that kind of thing, if you're attaching to a specific costume that would be nice and easy, they're strong and easy to get in a sew-on variety

if you want the cape to kinda cowl/drape between the shoulders in the back you would also want to make it wider than your shoulders at that point. Then when you bring the edges of the cape in, you get that drape effect. You'll need less of that U cutout as well. Luckily it's easy to play around with before you do any cutting.
2nding the wedge shape, that gives a nicer flow/drape than a straight rectangle

https://www.simplififabric.ca/ and https://www.fabcycle.shop/ are my current go-tos for fabric in Canada. Fabcycle is specifically deadstock which is a nice touch, and they get some neat stuff out of old mills sometimes.

Fabcycle has some lovely selections, and also for three dollars they'll apparently just throw in a box of whatever fabric they have lying around and my chronically indecisive ADHD rear end appreciates it.

I love it since I usually like to start with a material and get inspired from there, and they get some unusual things that can be put to fun use. A friend of mine regularly gets their scrap boxes to make into little quilted bags.

Really the only downside is their fabric classification can be a bit hit or miss, but the same can be said of a lot of retail fabric stores.
