I made myself a dressing gown. I'm wearing it now. It won't win any competitions but is just what I wanted.
I couldn't get it smooth around the neck and front bands, but I can live with it.

Material is from Doughtys in Hereford. 'Unknown Cats Glow in the dark Grey'.

Do those glow in the dark fabrics do what the name suggests?

Thankyou.

@Ploshkin I've not noticed them glowing as yet, but have not actually tested them. If they don't, I can live with it.

Empress Mills have a number of what they call "interactive fabrics" including glow in the dark. I don't know how they compare price-wise
