I've finished my robe  :)

It's in cotton lawn from Croft Mill, not quite the right time of year just now, but come springtime I'll be wafting around like a good 'un.

It's oversized and ankle length as I had hoped.

That's lovely - just my sort of robe.   :)

Rotated and slightly cropped.  Very pretty.

Cropped! Oh no  :o  @snoozi soozi wanted it ankle length.

Lovely robe, btw. Perfect for wafting about in.

Cotton lawn is just the perfect fabric for a summer robe, and this one is so pretty - lovely job. :loveit:

Since I made my original Liberty Lawn Vogue gown, I'm hooked on them, it will be my third next and so easy to make.

Love your Spring flowers.

@Vezelay it's this one. I was lucky to find it in Jaycott's sale a few weeks ago  :) I made View A in size XL. From this pattern I've also made a nightshirt (C) as a christmas pressie for my bestie.

I have to second that. @snoozi soozi
One of the ideas rolling around in the grey matter is a robe. Thank you for the lovely post, this is a perfect idea!

I am going all 50's glam with



McCall's 7875.  When my sewing room is set up, this will be my first project.  :D

I've made a top and bottoms to complete the ensemble. Excuse the sloppy presentation, I needed to show the separates

Dahling, it's Fab U Lous  :D 
Presume you don't have any pets who want to clamber on your lap? Pawprints tend to spoil the glamorousnessness.
