{Handmade} Luke Skywalker Costume

When we decided that Brooklyn would be Princess Leia, it only made sense to have Travis be Luke Skywalker since they are siblings. Plus he doesn't have his own opinions yet,
so I'm taking advantage while I can. Ha!

 He made a super cute Jedi.

For the Cloak I used Simplicity Costumes 5927
The pattern called for felt, but the costume needed linen so I had to add some length and hem.

To get the wrapped fabric look of the boots, I wrapped his rain boots with an Ace bandage.

 For the Tunic I used Simplicity Costumes 4797 and altered the front to a v-neck faux wrap.

For the pants I used Simplicity Costumes 3650.
Super easy sew.

The light saber was purchased in the toy section. The ones in the costume section were not as good quality and cost nearly the same, so it was sort of a no-brainer.

 Sometimes Luke Skywalker chases a Rooster with his light saber.

He loved his costume.
When I was making it he was so amazing about letting me try things on him and every time I pulled out the measuring tape he would stand super still with a big grin on his face.
He loves when Mama makes him things and I love when he wears them.

The most important thing she’d learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
