|Pattern Description: |
A collection of mens sleepwear pieces to mix and match. The robe is shown in two lengths, with a self or contrasting band on the front and sleeves. The pajama top has a patch pocket and is shown with both long and short sleeves, and also in two lengths. The pajama bottoms can be made short length or pant length.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I made the robe View B with a contrasting band. I used a chocolate brown polyester charmuse for the body and belt, and a golden brocade with an Asian design for the contrasting bands.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. The instructions were clear and the pattern went together quickly without fuss.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The contrasting front band is cut as a straight piece, not shaped at the front. This allows you to easily use a print fabric as the contrasting band.
I used a poly charmuse, the goal was decadent luxury
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The only design detail I changed was to add pocket flaps in the contrasting golden brocade.
The only construction technique I changed was the belt carriers. I always end up pinning or sewing bathrobe belts to the side seams so they don’t get lost. I eliminated the carriers and sewed the belt directly to the side seams. To make sure it fit right with the belt sewn this way, I had the robes wearer put the robe on and tie the belt. I pinned the belt to the side seams, then later sewed them in place. Now, the belt will never slip away from the robe.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would make this again, and yes, I recommend this pattern.
I recommend this pattern. The final robe is quite luxurious. The multiple pieces and views make this pattern a bargain, you can create an entire sleep wardrobe to suit your taste.
