Pattern suggestions, plus sized mens dressing gown.
« on: February 26, 2018, 11:06:43 AM »
I have been given some beautiful fabric, a soft check, I think maybe brushed cotton, or a very light weight wool.  This fabric is part of the stash left behind when a friend's wife died.  He wanted me to take some of the fabric, but is not really fabric that is my "style"

I thought perhaps, I could make him a summer weight dressing gown, made with this lovely fabric, perhaps embellished with satin as piping. 

But he's a big man, 5XL with a big tummy ....... A man with a "bit of importance" as I heard quoted once.  I am struggling with finding a pattern. 

Any suggestions/links would be great!  TIA.

Simplicity 5314 goes up to a 3XL, which according to their pattern sheet is a 60-62" (152-157cm) chest.

Would you be able to grade up to a 5XL, adding extra width at the front to accomodate his "importance"?
