Because of the natural slope of the shoulders, a cape looks best when constructed of two pieces (a front and a back) that are then joined at the shoulders. Your opening for easy on and off can be put on one shoulder or in front, however you prefer. Play around with some paper until you get the right slope for the shoulders along with width, length and shape etc. Using a one-piece pattern will make your shoulder lines straight across which looks odd. Hope this solves the problem. Let us know...
