Hello everyone! Oh how relaxing it is to cuddle up in a cozy robe, on a beautiful morning, with a good book and hot cup of tea. May I just say, “I LOVE my robe!” When I first tried it on for the photo shoot, I couldn’t stop squealing and carrying on about how beautiful and soft it is. Can you believe this is the first robe I’ve sewn for myself? Really, I’ve never made a robe for me. They’re amazing gifts, so I’ve sewn them for family members, but until now, I’ve been wearing the same old robe for years. I think I’m hooked, but how many robes does a lady need? Hahaha! Certainly we need at least three, right? We need one cozy robe for fall and winter. Then, of course, we must have a lightweight one for spring and summer. Finally, every lady should have a sexy, slinky robe in her wardrobe? But wait! I think we need to add a designated shower robe too. You know, the one you throw on coming out of the shower. The robe collection just wouldn’t be complete without adding this fourth robe. Oh brother, I should get back to the sewing machine.
If you’d like to start your own robe collection too, I’ve put together a video tutorial to help you along the way. Several of you requested this tutorial after seeing the ones I made last December for my husband and sons. You may view that post HERE.
I used Simplicity 1562 for all the robes. The pattern is unisex and includes sizes for adults and children, all in the same envelope.
This would be an awesome family or group project. The robes are easy to make, and depending on your sewing level, can be sewn in just one day. Although warm, cozy fabrics are suggested, you may easily substitute lightweight options since spring is quickly approaching. Enjoy the tutorial and your new robe.
