I finished my Jedi robe this weekend for my Kaiya Liin (original Jedi character) costume. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I may add a lining at some point, but I think it looks good for now. I used a heavy suiting fabric for it, and I’m concerned it might get super hot at cons, but we’ll see. I used Simplicity pattern 5840 (style B) and it was really easy to follow. The robe looks a little more fantasy than Star Wars, but I’m okay with that.
The plus side is that I’m pretty sure this robe could be used for other costumes in the future. Currently, my cats are using it as a fort. It’s a good thing I have plenty of lint rollers.
