I am using that tack the ties down idea! Same problem here. I need to make DH a robe (my kids never wear them even though it's plenty cold up here in MN.) You did a great job on this one - and used stash!

Wonderful. How nice and snuggley in your cold climate. I still have fond memories of robes I made for my sons 25+ years ago. They wore them for years, with just more and more gangly legs and arms sticking out. I agree about the tie. I have used a double loop method that attaches the tie at the side seams while allowing the belt to ride up or down and back and forth as the child's waist changes. I know your son will love this.

Such a sophisticated look for a little guy -- nice work! Thanks for the detailed info about how you took a pattern and adapted it to the needs/wants of the wearer. And, yes -- I'll join in your collective sigh, from one other serger-less sewist (are we the only ones left???)
