Harry Potter Robes

Munich, Germany






These were commissioned… I made five of them altogether, the girls wore them at a convention.
Obviously they are inspired by the Harry Potter movies (or copied, rather).
I made the pattern from scratch, the badges I bought at ebay.

EDIT: Added instruction for pattern construction and such :-)

Material Notes

Polyester fabric in different colours

    Thank you so much for the pattern and instructions! Very easy to follow and do =) I’ve already made one and have several others to make in order to attend the premier in November! As well as killer Halloween costumes =P Thank you again!

    I am trying to make this robe, but I am having a hard time understanding how to construct the pattern — when I cut out the front pieces, should it include the hood portion? Is the hood considered part of “the main part” or is a separate piece? On the diagram you have a section marked 10cm/4", is this part of the front or back, and is it included in the 50cm/15" measurement? And the two lines you marked in blue, that have to be the same length, is one of those lines part of the back or just the front pieces? If I don’t hear back I will just give it a go and see what happens!

      okay, so lets do this step by step :)

      - The hood portion must be cut out both with the front pieces and the coloured lining, so it is a part of the main part and doesn’t have to be attached or anything.

      - the section marked 10cm/4" is part of both the front and the back piece and yes, it’s included in the 50cm/15" measurement. Though I do advise (as I mentioned in the instructions) to check if this measurement is right for you. Just lay a measuring tape on the floor in front of you and stand over it to imagine how wide the hem of the robe would be.

      - Considering the lines marked in blue: One is of course only part of the hood, the other one is the neckline of the back piece so to say; they have nothing to do with the front pieces.

      I hope everything is clear now, if not, just ask again :)
      I’d love to see your final creation!

    I would also love the pattern; my daughter is already planning what to wear for the Sadies dance this year (girls ask!!) and wants to do the Hogwarts theme

      I added instrustions, I hope this will be enough to construct the pattern, because unfortunately I cannot make patterns in all possible sizes.

    I love you! Thanks so much for putting this up and with such good instructions! I’ve been looking a long time for a cloak pattern that would kinda-sorta work for the Hogwarts school robes with no luck!
