Our good friends Christine and Berney (that Berney who received a me-made bath robe earlier in the year) were planning to leave on a cruise vacation. To celebrate the occasion, we thought of gifting her with a “perfect” morning dressing gown — semi-sheer, sensual, light. And yes, the project had to be mailed in 2 days.
I started with the bathrobe pattern I used before – Burda 6740. I made a few changes: eliminated the shawl collar and facing and replaced them by a 2-inch trim, shortened the sleeves, lengthened and widened the bottom part of the garment.
The cutting and sewing was not harder than expected. The fabrics where fair to handle, both the burnt-out printed something and the solid pink polyester crepe. I interfaced the pink crepe fabric with lightweight white cotton poplin. I used the french seams throughout. Belt loops are made of black satin ribbon.
Bon voyage, Christine and Berney!
