I wish I could talk to you about sewing the neckline and shoulders, seemed complicated

Nice job! And your piping looks awesome!

For a cozy fleece robe, yours is great, and the piping really works. I am making this robe now, and had a really hard time fitting the front pieces where they go behind the neck to the back collar and shoulders. The squared off pieces meeting the curve has been a nightmare with a satin brocade fabric. Any advice?

What a fun (looking) project - now that it's done. :) I also love your addition of piping - great idea. I'm sure your review will help others when choosing their correct size.

Pity the Pattern Stash Contest doesn't have votes because this certainly deserves one. Absolutely love the fabric and the piping is perfect. When it gets too hot in Qld send it down to me.

I love the piping! Dressing gowns are meant to be big...enjoy the cosiness. :)

Well done on getting an entry into the Pattern stash contest - love the spotty fabric and the piping!

I like it too! It looks warm and snuggly, perfect for lounging around in the winter.

I like it! It will be cosy with this cold weather. I feel a bit the same about dressing gowns, but have the fabric to sew one too. Your polar fleece is fun and the piping is fantastic.
