So uh Rog, I have a question. What if you don't have the 4450 pattern due to it being completely out of production and availability to the public?


Rogers tutorial is way better than the actuall pattern. Very Happy
Honestly, I tried to find that pattern for some time before I saw Rogers tutorial. But with all the pics and instructions it is rather easy to make your own pattern, believe me.

Just a few tips I learned via trial and error:
-Do as Roger said and do a lot of research on the costume you are going to make. And collect a lot of ref pics.
-If you have old clothes that fit you, use them as guideline for your pattern or even rip the seams so you see how it is constructed and how the parts actually look like. (I learned a lot that way)
-Use a good pattern paper.
-MAKE PROTOTYPES. That's the most important tip in my opinion. I used a rather cheap fabric and made a prototpye and it always needed a lot of tweaking it and the pattern to make it fit properbly and to make it look right.

This way you should be able to make your own great jedi tunics.
If you have any question feel free to ask. And have a look at the COW site, there you find a lot of helpfull informations on the Obi-wan costumes that can be used for generic jedis as well.

Absolutely great robe tutorial! You put a lot research and effort in this and created a awesome robe. But I didn't expect anything less of you.
I'm honored that I could help you a bit with the researches for this project and can't wait to do it myself as soon as I get the right fabric.

Keep up your great work my friend.

Great Robe tutorial! Very helpful. I just have 4 comments.

1. It's also possible to do the sleeves as a seperate piece, but I am tempted to do it your way.

2. I got the drawing from someone else, but I'm glad it helped.

3. Indiana, as in Indiana Jones, not Indianna, like Dianna. Smile

4. I'm a dude. Very Happy

Thrilled about the tutorial tho, That is another way to do the gathering and I like it!

Yep, I looked at your profile, so I knew you were a dude. Sorry about that. Allergies are getting to me bad and I was not feeling so well when I wrote that tutorial last night.

As for sewing tutorials (like gathering, slip stitches, etc.), youtube has a million of them and most are very helpful!

I hadn't seen this Roger... VERY nice work, kudos to you! And many thanks, I am looking at this now as I start sewing up my inner & outer tunics (modified Simplicity 5840... probably the same as what you used before).

Thanks Very Happy

The pattern I modified was Simplicity's 4450, but...I've got the 5840 too, and the Jedi portions of the patterns are very similar. The experts...hmmm...perhaps I am one now?...agreed that the 4450 was "better" than the 5840. And, studying both patterns, the modification I did in this tutorial could have used either pattern as the starting pattern for this project.

Just wanted to add that if you use this tutorial for an Anakin robe( and it should work perfectly) you need to cut out two pieces for the hood. The hood is lined with the same material of the same size, so you have to follow this tutorial twice on that one part. I hope that doesn't sound too confusing.

Didn't know the Anakin ROTS hood was lined. Thanks for the tip Very Happy


I also think the robe pattern would work well for the Anakin ATOC robe...just eliminate the sleeves.

Adam is right, Roger... when we were visiting y'all for WMSI last year, we hung out at the Obi and Ani costume case... a lot. (Costume nerds... Laughing)

Obi-Wan's hood is hemmed... Anakin's is self-lined, but it has a seam that runs around the edge, rather than being merely folded over. If you are watching an HD version of ROTS, you can see the rim-seam in the Sith-eyed closeup on Mustafar.

Roger, your tutorials are wonderful... very detailed and helpful. And of course, I've seen your costumes in person, so I can vouch for their quality. Smile

[edit to fix typo]

I really like your tutorials. I made my robe pretty much the same way, but no shoulder tuck. I am going to make new tunics based on the tutorials you have here. I definately want to make another robe, mine is made of double napped cotton flannel and it is hotter than a light wool.

Ahh, but wool is the best fabric when you're stranded on a cold or temperate planet!

Definitely a great tutorial... starting to finish up my tunics now with it.

I have a question about the robe:
Do you find that dirt sticks to the wool?

If you don't go dragging it through the dirt in the petting zoo section at your local Boo-at-the-Zoo troop around Halloween....like I've done two freaking years in a row Sad

But then again, dirt will stick to anything that drags or touches the ground.

Somewhat recently I took a section of the wool fabric I made my robe from and washed it. It looked okay after washing (and allowing to air dry), but it shrank. My next experiment is to have a similar section of wool material drycleaned and see what happens to it. If it survives unscathed AND doesn't shrink, I'll get my robe drycleaned soon. Otherwise....I guess I'll just hang it on a clothes line and gently beat/brush the bottom of the robe until most of the dirt comes free.
