I understand that this group is full of knowledge regarding the costuming for the Harry Potter Movies. While I have read the books & seen the movies I am certainly not knowledgeable with details. However I am a fairly good seamstress and my husbands cousin is wanting a student robe. Now I am pattern dependant which is my little joke when people want me to make something out of thin air. so I really need a basic pattern, I can make some alterations but prefer to stick mostly to the pattern as I am really not well informed about all the details. Also this robe is actually a surprise for this cousin, I am actually making it for her mother to give as a BD present. So unfortunatly we cannot ask her for the details she wants, and the Mom is not much more informed than I.
So group I humbly beg your indulgence with a poor seamstress/cousin by marriage trying to do a good thing for the inlaw's family. <smile>
I need a pattern that does not need to much tweeking please, Oh and can you tell me about the pocket inside the robe for the wand? Where is it and is it hidden in a seam or a patch pocket?
Are there different robes for the different movies?
Average guess at how many yards of fabric for a 21 year old say size 10 in the USA.
Is the hood pointed? Do the sleeves bell? And do you think it is a good idea for them to be a bit shorter than wrist bone? Personally I hate anything around that part of my arm if I am doing work and well if I was going to pull out a wand and maybe have a sleeve get in my way I think I might want it shorter.
Ok I shall post this and await your responses. I have 4 weeks to get this all together so any quick help would be even more appreciated.
Wish me luck
