Harry Potter Robes

Added Aug 13, 2009

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

      Hi! I’m really sorry but I don’t have a pattern file that I could send you. I did however add instructions as to how to draft the pattern yourself in the right size. You can get them by clicking on the Instructions Tab.
      If there is any trouble with these instructions, just send me all the questions you have :)

    Hi, I made these once and they came out much too small, specifically the part across the back. I am trying to make them again. I am a bit confused about the measurement marked “half shoulder”. Is that supposed to be half of one of my shoulders or half of the measurement from shoulder to shoulder? I think this might be where I went wrong. Thanks for the pattern!

      That was supposed to mean half of the measurement from shoulder to shoulder. It is a bit unclear, thanks for mentioning it, I’ll put a note in the instructions.

    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!
