This robe was a quick project we came up with after finding some great knitted fabric on clearance. We thought we'd do something different for first weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival this year. So, we're hosting a Monty Python Invasion. (I'm amazed how the interest in our event took off! Already have 80+ people listed as going and many more interested! ) Should be a blast. You can join our event here:
If anyone is interested in making these quick and easy robes, here is the pattern layout I used:
The robes took a total of 105" of 60-inch wide fabric. I set it up so that we could take advantage of the unique ratty looking selvage edges to avoid having to hem. If you're unsure how it goes together, feel free to ask questions in the comments.
We also put together some reversible silly walk signs made with knights that we will have posted around camp. I designed the sign in Adobe Illustrator before printing on cardstock and affixing them to paintsticks with staples and spray adhesive. (If you'd like the digital files to print your own, just message me.)
Still hoping to get some knight's surcoats made, too. Wish me luck and time! :)
