As I mentioned earlier, we've been busy putting together a Star Wars themed party for Malcolm.And what's a Star Wars party without Star Wars costumes?!
So here's my little Jedi:
...he was still in his jammies when I made him try on the new robe.
Now those of you who have actually watched Star Wars would know that the Jedi robes are in fact dark brown.
I did not.
But thankfully, I am told that both Yoda and Obi Wan Kenobi have lighter coloured robes so my efforts weren't a total waste. Which is really good because I made 7 of these! There's one for each child attending the party.

They were simple to make, especially because I finished the edges with my serger rather than hemming them. Oh how I love my serger.
I took pictures as I went but figured it would be more clear if I drew up a little tutorial.
So here it is if you would like to make your own Jedi robe (no matter what colour you choose).
Each robe required between 1 and 1 1/2 meters of fabric (depending on the size of the child). I also made a hood for Malcolm's robe but didn't like how it turned out so I skipped this step for the other ones.
My littlest Jedi was too busy to stop for a photo but I managed to snap one of him on the move.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be doing one more post with all the final details of the party so stay tuned!
