Hi friends! I made a multi-purpose Jedi-robe...good for gaming conventions, Halloween, LARPING, day to day life....
I used Simplicity 4450, an OOP pattern a friend lent me. It called for 6 whole yards of fabric - ugh.
It was pretty straight forward to make, the only weird thing was pleats on the shoulders and some pleats in the hood (I'm not convinced they were necessary!)
As always, you can read more on my blog. May the force be with you! http://www.roadtotheheart.com/2012/09/jedi-robe.html
