Professor Mcgonagall's Robe
Updated: Sep 26, 2019
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 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.
I ordered the pendant that she wears with this outfit off of ebay.
Chayla Photography Pictures to come soon in this cosplay!
Overall I'd say this is really close to movie accurate.
