Easy Jedi Robe Tutorial

April 20, 2012

Step 10:

Sew the Hood to the Robe:  Alright, so we’re going to sew the hood to the robe. I think the pictures are tricky to show exactly what is happening. Here is the hood, and the robe. I have arrows pointing showing which edges you’ll be sewing together. 

Step by Step Jedi Robe Tutorial
 

So you’ll take the edges of the hood, and line the right sides together, and pin each edge. Then you’ll want to take the middle back of the hood  (where you sewed the hood closed) and line that up with the middle part of the neck. Pin once more there.  Sew that edge together the best you can. If your next is way bigger than your hood,  just make small folds/pleats and help it fit better.

    O.M.G!!! I am so copying you! I have 2 younglings of my own and they are eyeballs deep into Star Wars. My oldest refers to the younger as ‘Padawan.’ This would be a HUGE hit at my house. Thank you for the tute.

    Found you from Creatively Living’s blog party.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I have made robes for my 4 and 6 year olds and they are now very happy Jedi Knights.

    Thanks so much for this easy tutorial. Made the robe while my little Jedi was watching a hockey game with his dad.

    Thank you so much for your great tutorial!! I looked at a few and yours is really the best! My middle one (4) is a big star wars fan – i want to surprise him with a robe. Guess i’ll have to sew two more for the big (9) and little (15 months) jedi to go with their lightsabers.

    Ok so I’m a little sewing dumb. I don’t understand the part about sewing the sleeve CLOSED? And do you fold over any of the other edges or just the sleeves to hem them? Seriously, I don’t sew much but I have a machine and make it a goal to put together our Halloween costumes each year.

      Hey Vicki, way to go on sewing the costumes. So, all it’s talking about there, is sewing the bottom of the sleeve up, like it shows in the pictures above with the arrows (that show where to sew). Does that make sense? If not, let me know and I’ll do a better job explaining. I was just saying you can sew along the edges, and then you can hem the sleeve while you’re right there. I just folded the edge of the sleeve over, because basically you’ll turn it inside out, so you don’t see the parts that you’re sewing. Hemming the sleeve isn’t essential at all though.

    Thank you so much! I spent a lot of time on my daughter’s costumes and was spent by the ti e I gotto my son’s. Dad made a cool lightsaber so I was thrilled to find a simple pictorial guide on how to make a quick jedi robe. You are a life saver!!

    In just a few days, you can have your shop up and running
    with Zen Cart. No software to buy, no code to learn, all you need is to
    be a little Internet savvy and know how to click your mouse.

    I discovered the way to make money on the internet.

    I do trust all the ideas you have introduced to your post.

    They’re very convincing and will definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters. May you please lengthen them
    a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    Thank you so much for posting this tutorial (even if it was several years ago, lol!)! I am a nominal sewer at best, and I completed this entire project in less than 2 hours. It turned out great and my little guy is SO excited about wearing it for Halloween! He thinks his mommy is amazing for being able to make it… (I’m a little proud of myself, too, thank you very much). Thanks for saving me a bundle on cheap costumes that don’t even look like the real thing. I love this robe!!

    Hi, I just want to thank you for putting these instructions out. They were really easy to follow and it took exactly as much time as you said it would. I made this yesterday for my little Luke Skywalker to wear trick or treating (it gets cold here in the Northeast). I made it out of fleece (on sale) and got SO many compliments! I don’t have a sewing machine so I did it by hand but it only took about 2 hours. Thank you again. This site was a good find!
