Introducing Jedi Knights Sean and Vesper:
Note the sad Jack ‘o Lantern to their right, designed by Vesper and cut by Daddy. (Vesper drew a picture and we used that as the template for the actual pumpkin cutting.)
Two words: epic drama. Welcome to life with Vesper. 😉
This costume project was pretty simple compared to last year. I used the instructions from this post on the Simplistically Sassy blog to make the outer robe . But since cutting the robe out freehand stressed me out I only did it once and then used that robe to make a pattern that I used for the second robe. I love how easy it is to sew up the robe and how good it looks! For the Jedi shirt I bought a couple long-sleeved white T-shirts and cut off the cuffs and collar to make them look more Jedi-like. I re-finished the neck edge with a quick row of zigzag to keep it from stretching out too much.
Then I sewed up a few wide strips of white cotton to make the crossover piece and belt. The belt fastened in the back with a bit of velcro and the costume was done! By itself the shirt looked like a pretty good Karate costume, two costumes in one. 🙂
