While doing some spring cleaning today, I found a couple of robes I made very early on, one was a light weight wool, another was a sort of Ki Adi style sleeveless vest in a brushed flannel and of course there is the the natural undyed silk-wool blend that started to be for someone else in a show, but we changed that costume, so I still have it and have been planning to redo it for myself. And then there's that bolt of dark brown wool boucle that I've been saving for a robe for myself, I usually wear my brown cotton twill, and think it's a bit warm and usually take it off, but I really should redo the robes that I don't wear, then I might wear them at least for pictures. Anybody else have any redos?

Im thinking of touching up my lightweight robe... specifically the shoulder area. Right now it has no tucks, but I hate how it weighs down the shoulders of my tunic, so Im gonna try to make tucks, but that will shorten the sleeves so Im not sure what to do about that.
I'll need this robe for orlando!

Oh, wow, do I have a redo....... I made an Anakin-style sleeveless robe from AOTC out of beige wool. A nice rough weave.
And it shrank.
I swear I pre-washed, but it shrank.
So, I've had it hanging with electrical clips for months to get some length back. I undid the sewing on the inner lining along the edges and at some point I have to re-sew that again. It should look acceptable, but maybe a little shorter than I intended.

I recently bought a very lightweight sleeveless robe in brown I might wear with one of my costumes ans it has a saber blade pocket "a ideal I first noted from Ani-Chay " so I can now carry my favorite saber on belt inwtead of the prop o have
