Question Cape Pattern Help

I need some cape pattern help. Since I switched to traditional years ago I have been wanting to make a cape. I have a couple jingle capes but I don't really use them much and I recently tucked them away. Anyways, this is the style cape I want to make (picture saved to my pinterest), Women&#39s Traditional | My Life ~ Pow Wows



So my question is, how to I sew the side and top seams!? I have my pattern cut out on paper already and I was thinking of cutting a pattern out on old material to play with it before I really cut it out onto my material i'm going to make the cape into. Help!!

That link didn't take to a pic.

On making any cape, you should make one out of paper first, and get it just right, then use that as a pattern.

Try to link a pic again, I'm interested in what kind!
Thanks!

Oh yes! I have mine cut out of paper and measured the exact length I need. I always do that, been doing that since I was 12 years old (over 13 years now). Heres the link again, hope it works because I could really use some advice!!

Shucks, Pinterest is blocked on my computer (at work) I'll try to check it at home.
