I just made myself a jersey robe. Oh how I love this robe! I’ve been prancing all around the house telling everyone about how much I love it. Yes, I’m acting like a 5 year old on Christmas day. I know. I’m nuts.
Good morning! I still wear my footed pajamas to bed, but this sure is nice to put on if I’m feeling a bit of a chill. It’s light-weight enough that I’m sure I’ll be donning this all the time during the warmer months, too. I used some fabric I scored from a destash via the Sewing Summit forums. This fabric was great to work with, it wanted to stick to itself, so I didn’t have to spend a whole lot of time pinning.
I used the pattern I made for my cardigan, but lengthened it so it would go past my knees. It turns out I had just enough fabric for it, too. Maybe a lightweight voile or crepe would be nice at a floor length?
I ran out of fabric for the sash, so I used some quilting cotton for the sash. It worked out nicely.
As hoped, it didn’t take as long to sew as the previous cardigan, but it still took about two hours to make. Not bad, considering I’ve had a terrible time finding a robe like this for ages!! Do you ever wear robes? Where have you found yours? I’m in love with the print on this one.
