Professor McGonagall's Robe

Updated: Feb 2

Following up with the Professor Mcgonagall's Hat I created. I wanted to complete the costume with her green robe.

The robe was a little more difficult than the hat; mainly due to there not being a lot of pictures to go by. I did find a blog I used for resources on this build. www.cationdesigns.com. She was extremely helpful.

I used a dark green panne velvet fabric for the robe. The pictures make it look super dark or almost black, but trust me, it's green. The pictures don't do it justice.

I used the pattern Simplicity 9887 for the base of the build. It's the same pattern used for the hat.

I had to modify the entire pattern a good amount to make it look more like hers. I zoomed in on a picture of the back of the robe and hand-stitched the yoke for a good hour and a half. That was a tad challenging, but I finally got it the way I wanted.

I didn't have enough fabric to make the front part of the robe exactly like hers, but I got it as close as I could. The sleeves fit perfectly.

Chayla Photography Pictures to come soon in this cosplay!

Overall I'd say this is really close to movie accurate.
