Hello my lovelies,
Here’s the next item that will be in the special delivery package from Hogwarts for our Hogwarts Holiday at Home program.
Every witchlett needs a school robe! I’m still waiting for the patch to arrive from ebay but I couldn’t help posting a picture. I am a mature enough geek to say that I really want one of these myself!
I was lucky enough find a sewing pattern for a kids robe at a car boot sale- you know the kind you wear over your pyjamas? I used that and lined it to make this robe. It’s not a difficult sewing project and requires intermediate sewing skills. Everything but the sleeves on this robe are lined.
Sadly, I didn’t take pictures of the sewing process but here’s a tutorial from DIY Fashion that is easy to follow and until I found my pattern I was going to use it.
When the Gryffindor patch arrives I’ll sew it on and it’s going to look really cool. I think she’s going to love it!
