I sewed a robe!! It's soooo pretty. I had a robe already. But it was a shade of gray that just looked terrible on me! So I had a pattern and ordered some knits from Girl Charlee just specifically to make a robe!
I used McCall's 7516 and it went together pretty easily, The front and hood are one pattern piece, so the construction is different than anything I've made before, but worked great.
I truly believe that women should feel pretty is everything we wear and that includes loungewear and p.j.'s! If you have to wear them, they might as well be cute. I have made some other loungewear patterns, but the one that I'm most happy to recommend is this chick boxer pattern by EvielaLuveDIY on Etsy. I made three pair in one day and wear them all the time. Check out her shop because she has such beautiful patterns and kits!
I've really been having to carve out time for personal sewing lately. I have several knits I'd like to sew up before we move in a couple months, but the to-do list is also starting to compound, so I'm trying to carve out and hour here and there to whip through some projects. It's a good thing I'm fast!
