I used a grey muslin wrap for this project. It just happened to be the perfect size…for a toddler.
Start by measuring and drawing the shape of the robe on the material. I didn’t use a pattern, I just eye-balled it.
Then sew around the outside edges, but leave the arm holes, the bottom of the robe, and the neck open.
Fold the robe in half, and cut up the center of the front of the robe. This will transform it from ‘dress’ to ‘robe’.
Use an existing hood as a pattern and measure and cut out the hood shape on the material. Sew the hood together.
Open the hood, and pin to the neck opening of the robe. Then sew.
And…ta daaaaaa!!! A very simple and basic robe.
I didn’t hem any edges because:
a) it’s a costume
b) the robe that Yoda wears is quite derelict and has rips and holes and isn’t perfectly hemmed.
c) too much effort for what I was going for…(I’m sorry to disappoint).
Here’s the finished Yoda robe, as modeled by Teddy:
And with the Yoda ears:
Just need a walking stick and the outfit is complete.
