Today I'll show you my fabric choices and the pattern I'll be using to create the robe. This Vogue pattern is an OOP I've had for quite some time. Just love the look but never got around to making it up. Well now, its going to morph into a robe pattern. LOL. As you can see by my totally unskilled drawing talents, I've tried to sketch out a longer version of the top. Its going to be either ankle length or mid-calf. Not sure about that yet. I've done 2 different views on what I could do with the side fastening area. One view ties and the other view fastens with 3 loop & button closure. I'm leaning towards the loop & button. Mostly because it will be a smooth canvas for a bit of embroidery.
Tomorrow I'll have time to start stitching out samples and I'll also start making up a muslin of the robe in some cheap flannel I got FTSWALTH (from the stores we all love to hate). Btw, one wash and that flannel already pills something awful.
