Rated 4 out of 5 by Olfen Schlaussen from Easy! I've used this pattern several times, especially for costumes for Rebel Legion approval. Just keep in mind that everything is supposed to be big. Also, if going for approval in a costuming group like the Rebel Legion, your tabards will need to be modified by extending past the obi (belt). Construction can be a bit tricky in some parts, but overall I feel this is a fairly easy pattern to use, especially since I'm certainly not an expert sewer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gryffnknitter from Reasonably workable for novice sewer This took a bit to figure out how to assemble and then manage to wrangle the fabric. I'm not sure why the robes for the previous poster came out so short. I made view B which puddled on the floor on my 6' tall husband.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PABuglady from Says it is sized but "B" is not This has been a very frustrating pattern. It says on the package it is sized but when you open it to cut it you find out for "B" it is one size fits all. I cut the fabric and pinned it together and it was way too big for me. I called SImplicity for help to size it down but they said they can not help me alter the pattern in anyway. They woman from Simplicity was very short with me and no help.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jackie23 from Too short I had to super edit the pattern. I am 5 feet tall and it was too short! also it was too wide. If you are taller then me, expect to lengthen the capes. Otherwise, good pattern
