I was hoping for some help in making a Jedi Master Robe, but the only Tutorial I managed to find on here, or anywhere else (most just reference EeanLedgor's) involved cutting from a 72" bolt of fabric.

I spent yesterday searching all of my nearby and extended fabric stores, and could not find anything on a bolt that long. What I managed to find is a standard 60" bolt, great colour, great weight so I bought some.

So, I was wondering if there is a resource here, or that anyone else knows of that will assist me in making it using a 60" width.

Note that I'm over 6' tall, as this may affect things as well

You can add the sleeves with a seam at the shoulder, or a seam down the center back will also work for working with narrower fabric. I could show you more tricks, but trying to type up descriptions will confuse both of us.

I wouldn't recommend shoulder seams for a PT robe, though. That's more an Old Ben thing. Smile
