A "Mandelion" is the half-cloak seen in all those Musketeer movies. It has a flat panel in front and back (excellent for heraldic display), along with wing-shaped sleeves sewn to the back panel to form a cape. I make them using the Randwulf's Mandelion pattern.

MAND001 - Red Corduroy "Randwulf's Mandelion" with White Wings has been sold, but I've left this link in place so you can view the picture.

The following mandelions are available, but not pictured. Please inquire.

MAND002: Red cotton/poly twill body, white wings (same colors and size asMAND 001) 21-inch shoulder $35

Mantled Hoods or Cowls
These consist of a hood sewn to a circular mantle (also called a capelet). The longer ones work as mantles for adults or full-length capes for children.

My cowl-making technique is explained in Randwulf's Collection of Capes, Randwulf's Ramblings on Costume Volume 2: Yardstick and Chalk, and as a free online article at cowl.htm.

HOOD 070429: has been sold, but I'll leave the picture in place for a while so you can see its shape.

The following mantled hoods are available, but not pictured. Please inquire.

HOOD 070922: Black cotton-lycra duck, 26-inch radius $30

I've had some requests lately for hoods with narrower mandles and long liripipes. What do you think?
