Monday, I worked on my brother's Jedi robe pattern. I was working with some stash fabric, a nice heavy-ish cotton twill. Not movie accurate, but free, and I don't think he is going for the Rebel Legion or anything. I laid it all out for the original pattern and realized I was two yards short on fabric. After some consultation with him, he decided he didn't care if there were seams where movie versions don't have seams. After that, I was finally able to piece out a pattern and get the fabric cut out. I had about a 2'x3' rectangle left over, heh.

Yesterday, I put it all together. I still have to finish all the hems, but it's much closer. Next time he is over, I'll get him to try it on and get this thing done!

Woohoo! Good for you! I love it when I can make it work with too-little fabric.

It still looks really good, even with all the seams. So yay!

As I was reading, I was about to reply to the first part with a "dangit! Don't you just hate when you can't use stash fabric, because there is not quite enough!? BLARGH!" reaction, but then the story has a happy ending, so yay!
