Towelling Robe

When Rascal was about one year old we were given a towelling robe for her. It was FAR too big, but she would wear it when she got out of the bath each night (she still does!). It has been great and we decided that we wanted one for Wee Man too. The only thing is that it is an international brand and I don't think that the fabric quality or workmanship reflect the cost of importing one of these robes.

Mr Tartankiwi (with his infinite faith in my sewing skills) had a solution. "Why don't you make one?"

I used Rascal's robe as a template and this is what I came up with.

I did my best to make the seams as neat as possible, but as I don't have an overlocker, they could definitely be neater. 

My favourite detail is the animals on the pocket thanks to some fun fabric from Sew Pretty.

I reckon Wee Man will look pretty cute in it and it will definitely get lots of wear.

  1. Perfect idea... and I'm sure he would look very cute in this.... oh and with hubby having so much faith in your sewing, maybe one day you can persuade him to get you a overlocker? :) that or a pair of pinking shears... they are a good alternate.

  2. I love the colour! I'm sure he will look adorable in it. My Smalls all wear made-by-mum robes after their showers too.

  5. Aw, so gorgeous. I love the animal fabric on the pocket, such a great touch :) I'm impressed with your skills, sewing with towelling just sounds fuzz ridden and complicated to me!
