Robe aka Jedi Knight Garb (Deployment Project #34)

My son, Cameron, doesn't ask for much.  When it comes to sewing, there aren't a lot of things that are super fun to make for boys.  So, when he asked me to make him a robe, what could I do but say "yes!"  Of all the different fun fleeces that are out there, he chose - BLACK.  Try as I might, I could not convince him to choose someting more fun, so black it was.

After I finished making it, I understood.  this was not a robe for keeping warm in the morning.  This was not a robe to wrap around yourself after taking a shower.  No, this was a Jedi robe.  It's magical.  When you put this robe on, you are instantly transformed into a Jedi Knight with all the Jedi powers you can imagine and the ability to wield a lightsaber like no other!

I thought making a robe would be complicated, but honestly, it was probably one of the easiest clothing items I have ever sewn.  

All these extra pictures are just for daddy!!
