We absolutely LOVE robes!
Jedi robes, Sith robes, wizard robes, Elven robes, Snow Queen robes...you name it!
It all began in 2007.
I made jedi robes with some scrap material for our 2 kids for Christmas.
They loved them...
Then she loved it!
FLASH FORWARD to 2012:
Son number 3 is the perfect size for the robes from 5 years earlier!
And he loves them!
But, the tragedy was the older son.
His love for robes hasn't changed...but his size has.
Harry Potter Wizard duels just weren't the same.
So, when he had some date time with me...that was his request.
A Jedi robe that fit him.
And he was sooo happy!
This one in fact...the blue one.
large the person was I was making it for...like for toddlers too!
I've cut it out probably fifty times, so it's pretty committed to memory!
The back is cut on the fold, the front is 2 pieces with the selvage edge down the center.
Then you sew the layers together from the armpit to the floor on both sides.
Then I cut with the pinking sheers to prevent frays.
Here's the shape of the piece that goes over the shoulders, across the
back. You could use a t-shirt as a guide...
It sews on the top edge of the big pieces...
Then a hood and big bell sleeves are sewn on.
Double fold and hem the sleeves and the length.
We make them and wear them for virtually every Halloween costume ever!
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
