Finding Harry Potter Hogwarts Robes In 2017

In years past, we’ve always made a point of maching House colors with other crafters who produced costume props such as silk ties and robes  – especially custom made robes for both the regulation school uniform and the Quidditch© team uniforms.

In fact, we worked with several of these vendors to put together a completely color coordinated costume.

Since then, website visitors continue to contact us for references related to the purchase of authentic robes.

Be sure to add ties and other costume props to your Wish List!

Unfortunately our primary robe vendor went out of business several years ago but in this post, you’ll find our favorite DIY Harry Potter© robes created from sewing patterns and pure imagination.

The results are beautifully finished and authentically created robes using the instructions found in a collection of amazing tutorials.

Some are whimsical and pure magic. Who knew a plain black t-shirt could so easily transform into a mini Hogwarts® robe?

The robes look quite easy to sew.

All you need are a few yards of black fabric (or a black t-shirt), some yardage for a full or partial lining in House colors! It looks like all these robes are quick to make!

Get out the sewing machine and make a beautiful Hogwarts robe to complete your Halloween costume. Or….

This tutorial from the propaganda_13 LiveJournal post dates back to 2006 during the height of the Harry Potter© book release and movie premiere events.  I know we were extremely busy during ’06 and the following year.

The tutorial is for a robe sewn from the modified Simplicity Sewing Pattern 5840 Misses, Men and Teen Costumes.  The Simplicity 4866 sewing pattern features the same cover photo as Simplicity 4462 which is also for Hogwarts styled wizard robes.
