My sister and her best friend wanted some Gryffindor costumes to wear to the midnight release party, so I agreed to make them for them, even though my sewing skills kind of suck.

Action shot... hehehe

I used Butterick pattern 3184, but modified the sleeves (by choice) and the entire robe (not by choice... a child's size 12 was super huge).  The Gryffindor patch was made with black fabric ink-jet iron transfer paper from an image I found when I Googled "Gryffindor patch".

The ties were maroon ties that were taped and painted gold to make stripes.

The skirts and shirts were their own and my dad made the wands.  I was going to post this sooner, but I had to finish Half Blood Prince  Grin

These are great.

My kids are going to a Harry Potter party in August and I was thinking of make costumes.

What kind of fabric did you use for the robes?

one was made of a polyester suiting and the other was made of rayon, I think... they took about 5 yards each

Wow, awesome robes! I went to the midnight release party and no Gryffindors (including myself!) looked as good as your sis and her friend. Amazing!
