    Hi everyone. I'm looking for a pattern to make a Jedi Robe or Cloak for the big "premiere night". If anyone can help me please drop me an email, I live in the Western Suburbs of Sydney.

    There's a McCalls pattern called "Space Nomads"; with a little modification you can make a really authentic looking costume. I'll look up the pattern number for you when I get home.

    The proper stuff is cheesecloth.

    Edit: Bad info!

    I used an old blanket for my rug and cut it out. My mum wasnt too happy though. That or you can always use heavy cotton.

    Cheesecloth is for the tunic, isn't it Kalor?

    I used a really rough cheesecloth for the tunic and brown suede/velour type stuff for the robe (don't know the technical term). I couldn't find much that was heavier and you're talking a huge price jump for bying heavy cloak material. Still, People at a convention I wore it to said it was one of the more authentic costumes they'd seen.

    Still haven't got that pattern number sorry....
