Hello all you wonderful crafy people!

Two of my friends are big Star Wars fans and they want me to make them the robes from the up and coming movie. Problem is, I'm not exactly sure how to. I've made stuff before, but always freehand, never from a pattern or my own pattern or anything. Here are the robes they want me to make:

Not great pictures either.

I have about 3 weeks (I think) to finish them. They need them by opening day of the movie. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!!!

I'm in creative heat! I must procreate with the fabric!

what about taking a big rectangle of black fabric, running in a channel about 50cm from the top, then threading a tie through the channel to gather it into a cape with a 50cm flap at the top. If you cut a triangle out of the middle of the flap, then sew the 2 edges together to make the hood, and shape the front of the hood as you see fit (cut of the corners etc).  just a thought

(final pattern something like |\/| with the drawstring between the top triangles and the rectangle bit)

Here's a fairly simple idea, all you'd have to do is get different colors of fabric. The two robes from the movies are pretty much the same pattern just different colors. http://www.degraeve.com/jedirobe/ Good luck!!! Please post pics when ur done, I'd love to see how they turn out!

i made a jedi robe for my dad, and it turned out terrible. i used direction from the one website, but i forgot that my father isn't 5'4" liek me, so it was too tight. otherwise it looked alright.

pessimism: because i'd rather be pleasently surprised than horribly disapointed
