Hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday! It's been very busy around these parts, but I did manage to make my Mom a Christmas present; this glamorous robe! The pattern is Butterick 9214 from 1959. I have been searching for this pattern of a little while, I love the elegance of it. I especially like how the ties are attached at the side seams.
The fabric is an off white velour from JoAnn's, which worked out well and has a nice drape for the robe. This project came together rather quickly, it was very easy to follow. My fabric was too thick to gather it at the waist as instructed, so I made pleats instead. I also had to draft a pattern piece for the back facing, and I still finished it just in time for Christmas Eve!
I used bias trim for the seam finishing, in a contrasting red color. It makes for a very festive interior! Obviously my Mom loves it, she feels very chic in it. Its very important to be glamorous while lounging on the couch. We had fun taking pictures with my marabou feather slippers and her crystal champagne glass, this robe requires a cocktail.
All the best in the New Year!
Happy 2013 Everyone!Pin It Now!
