This semi-recent make is the perfect thing for me to share right now. These pages have been a bit quiet as I have been enjoying a more relaxed pace of life lately. Maybe relaxed isn’t exactly the right way to describe it because most days I am busy as can be, but I suppose it’s more a relaxed mentality. I’ve been more gentle and forgiving with myself, which has allowed me to enjoy all my creative hobbies that much more. And this robe has been giving me deliciously relaxing vibes since the moment it came off of my sewing machine.
Much of the time when I buy fabric, I might have an idea of what I will use it for but I don’t always stick to that plan. With this project though, I knew the moment I saw the fabric that I had to have a robe made out of it. The Suki robe had been on my mind for quite a long time, and this was a perfect opportunity. As expected, the light and soft Liberty fabric has been wonderful to wear as a robe. My only regret is waiting several months between purchasing the fabric and actually sewing the robe. Too many things I want to make, WAY too little time!
This is such a lovely pattern with gorgeous details including an inner tie to keep the robe securely closed which is crucial! The length is easily customizable. I opted for view B because shorter robes have always been my jam, and I shortened it an additional 4-5 inches because I am four inches shorter than the height the pattern is drafted for (story of my life.)
