If you have bangs--you might go with the young version...bangs and lots of curls.
I used my favorite Robe pattern Simplicity 5840...and cut a rounded hood instead of a pointy one.
Seriously, this pattern is worth it!
You can pick it up from Amazon too!
I cut a red lining for the hood only and sewed it up.
It takes about 2 hours of sewing to get it all together.

Here's the funny backstory:
I was majorly into making robes about 8-9 years ago...I made 100's.
I bought every single bolt of black or brown material on the $1 a yard rack at Walmart...
and they don't even have that rack anymore!
I cut out this pattern so many times...until I wore myself out!
I sold a bunch of them for $100's each and gave many as gifts.
I cut out another batch of 10 robes...and there they sat,
unsewn for years.
I searched through the robes and found this black robe with a red lined hood...
all cut out from nearly a decade ago!
It was perfect...and fits my now grown up children!
Thanks PAST Natalie!
that I was prepping for the ultimate Gryffindor Robe!
No Gryffindor Costume is complete without a Gryffindor tie!
Gotta love that 11 year old look!
