Someone asked me to make a Harry Potter school robe. It was sized for a child. We could have just purchased one for $30 at a costume store but for $15, one can be made with fabrics ten time better quality. After I finished the project i realized I can scale the process for an adult size robe/cloak.
The following is the procedure to make your own Jedi / Harry Potter Robe or cloak.
This instructable is writen for the total sewing Noob, like myself.
Step 1: Materials
Fabric Scissors - Don't cut paper with your "good" scissors
Sewing needle (optional)
MINIMUM 4 yards of Fabric - I like woven fake suede, AKA microfiber. More fabric if you are taller or larger. I weigh150 pounds, so the 4 yards was enough for me. Add more yards and wider bolts of fabric if you are larger and/or taller.
1 spool of thread
25 sheets of printer paper 8.5"x 11" or legal size.
Paper glue - Elmers
