To make the pattern I used a pattern for a female hood and had in mind that the hood would lie onto the back head and shoulders and continue a bit further then the forehead.

On images the neck part ends about where your cheek starts.

I chose a rather short tail and lined the hood with the same fabric. Next time I'll use a thinner fabric, this fabric is 435 gram per square meter.
