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?

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

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!

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!
