Hi, Can anyone recommend a good multisized pattern for a lined children's dressing gown? Thinking of making it out of minky and lining with cotton. Might adapt quick sew 2705 (I like the hood), but does anyone know of any others? (And am I in the right forum ...I'm new to this site).

This Newlok 6170 has a dressing gown pattern which is multisized for children. It isn't lined, but I cant imagine its that hard to add one (I'm basing that statement on creating linings for skirts and dresses myself).
The pattern instructions were pretty good when I made the PJ pattern and it covers everything from young babies up to (I think if I remember right) about 7 years old. So worth buying if you want to remake the same thing later on.

Do not know where you are for access to patterns, using the term dressing gown. You mean a bathrobe? If you have the Big 3-4 pattern books, look in the back under the Family sections, where they feature sleepwear.
Minky can get quite warm by itself, as does regular fleece, which is common in robes now. I love the old velour, but a clerk told me they never get it now since fleece is everywhere.

You could try Jalie 2567 - it is not lined, but easy enough to add youself I would think.
Extra bonus - LOADS of sizes!!
