Your robe is so pretty, and I love the floral fabric! I have this pattern and look at often, but never made it up. Now I think I'll try it! I'm with you on the belt loops! I've cut them off every time, as they always turn out too high- and you've already done all the work! Great review!

I missed this while I was out of town but it looks like a perfect robe for spring/summer. And I like how you added the hanging loop on the inside--a very practical touch that also moves it a notch or two above an ordinary robe. The fabric is charming, too!

lyndle..this one isn't too bad. I would look it up in a technique book, rather than rely on the pattern instructions. It relies on clipping at apprioate points. This is a good pattern to learn that on since the collar will cover the area if you really mess up. Thanx for your kind comments

Great robe, love that fabric! Thanks for tip about belt loops. How tricky is that collar/ shoulder area? Could a beginner do it with the instructions?
