My niece (mother of two, juggling work, school, and babies) saw my son's Hogwarts robe at a recent family gathering. She went crazy, dancing around the room and having a blast playing with my grandson. So her step mom and I hatched a plan to gift her a robe for Christmas.

It was easier this time as I had an actual pattern. What a difference. I still had to add a wand pocket and side pockets, but that's easy. http://www.clairesanders.net/2011/10/wizard-robe.html had a .jpg of a pattern she had drafted with basic instructions. I drew it out in Illustrator, enlarged it and printed it out. I ended up reducing the hood height, and narrowing the front by quite a bit. I fully lined it and added a wand pocket an side slit pockets. It fit me on the smaller side and I'm 5'7" and 170 lbs, she's shorter and slender, so I hope it is not too big. Frankly, I don't think she will care.

Dad and brother are getting her a tie, wand and scarf. She will be set to enter Hoggwarts!

What a wonderful gift! Not just the robe, but the joy it will bring.

pm me and I can send you my pattern. The directions are spotty, so you will need to have some garment making experience, but it's fairly basic. Any basic jacket type instructions would help. You can scale it down as needed. The robe I made would fit an average woman. It's fairly forgiving.

I ordered 6 yards of fabric, both outer and lining, but only needed a bit less than 5. Fabric.com had some good prices as I couldn't get enough of any one fabric at my local fabric store. One reason was that I narrowed the front to fit on the standard folded fabric. I just angled the side seam to fit. It was still nice and full.
