This halloween we were all characters from Star Wars and I made 6 costumes, 2 kids and 4 adults, anyway, it took me a while to find a way to make a good jedi robe, and I couldn't find any single tutorial I liked, so after reading probably every robe making cloak designing forum, blog post, etc I could find; I came up with this basic pattern that I adapted 5 different ways.  I used the basic idea and just changed up fabric, details and such to make Jedi Robes.  Here are a few pics of one of the finished results and the tutorial, it's in paint, sorry, first time making a tute and I hope it's clear.  Grin


This is my youngest modeling his robe-there are more pics of the other costumes on my blog
http://carmeniscrafty.blogspot.com/2009/08/check-this-out.html and a brief description of how they were made.  Hope you enjoy!

Your costumes were A-MAZING!! 

and thanks for your tute, i've been asked for a jedi robe... i'd say for christmas, but i think it's more realistic if it's for a christmas break project!  so off to the fabric stores!

Did jedi costumes for MY boys when they were little. Never got around to making robes though. Yours came out great. Have you seen the simplicity pattern that's out there? I used that version to make myself an "Emperor" and a Gandalf the grey costume with a few modifications.
Love how full you got the hood. I have a licensed version and is the one real gripe I have. It's more like a hoody than a cloak. Your use of colors is real good too. Not copied but staying to traditional Jedi style. One lucky kid I's got to say.
