star wars birthday - part 2

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!


  1. I am so happy to see this. My nephew told me that he wants to do a Star Wars party and so I think I will be recruited to help out :). These robes are so cute! Can't wait to see everything else!

  2. Good job you. It turned out great.
