The Obi-Wan Kenobi Dress

…I procured a marvelous Moroccan bed sheet for €1. With the aid of my faithful stitch-droid I transformed it into a most excellent cowl dress fit for the fiercest female Jedi:

wear it as a cool over-sized cowl…

or flip it up into a rockin’ Jedi hood!

…just make sure you have your light sabers charged & ready for action!

The Obi-Wan Kenobi Dress, along with 12 fabulously clever textile transforming tutorials, is available in my fancy schmancy Confessions of a Refashionista: Upcycled Textiles e-book for a mere $3.

  1. Looks great and I think you could make these in a number of fabrics and without sleeves in a winter fabric to wear as a jumper. I LOVE IT.
    Enjoy your wearing.

    • Danke Schoen Brenda! I totally agree! I absolutely plan to make more…I have a lovely vintage lace table cloth that I think would be fabulous for making a short sleeved version! There are so many variations to be done with this wonderfully simple idea! =O)
