Hogwarts robes created as Halloween costumes. I extended the front lining a bit to make room for wand pockets, used covered hooks & eyes (http://www.joann.com/hook-and-eye-black/8593972.html) as closures instead of the buttons with elastic, and had to size down a bit, but other that that, I followed the pattern as written.
I made these out of inexpensive sheets from Wal-Mart. I got the house patches from Etsy. Each robe cost less than $20 to make.
