Here is the inspiration for this project.
Free People. So pretty with the ruffle!
Another Free People. This is the basic style I was going for, but I wanted something with a more colorful print.
This one I found on Pinterest. Love the print, but I wanted mine to be a little less "robe" like.
Love that this one is so long! Anyway, now I think you get what I'm going for here.
What you will need:
3 yards of (I honestly don't know what it is, silky chiffon, rayon something like that. Whatever you want the texture of your robe to be)
36 inches of shear, delicate ribbon (for the ties)
Cream or matching colored thread
A lot of patience for all the pinning you will be doing!
1. Try on the piece of fabric as if it was finished already to get an idea of how long you want it all to be. Its pretty much in the shape it needs to be already, so we are just making some seams. I will give you directions for the way I did it. But remember, I am 5'8", so I may be taller than some! So try it on several times throughout to make sure its fitting. Cut off 11 inches from one of the long sides of the piece, which when put on is the back of the robe. I would have cut a little bit less in a perfect world. Probably 9 inches, but once its cut, its cut!
