Simplicity 1946 Terry Robe

e1

My house has purple fuzz everywhere!

S1946 is currently my favorite robe pattern. It’s so easy to make (no attached front band), and it’s a wonderful fit.

I made two robes earlier this year, but I had difficulty wearing the fabrics. One was rayon French terry, and the other was cotton/tencel sweater knit (here). Both irritate my neck and shoulders. So I made a new one in cotton terry cloth – bingo! The terry has a nice weight, is very soft, and feels just right.

Sewing notes:

  • I sewed the size Medium with no changes.
  • A tip for the belt carriers: Terry cloth is thick. If you insert the ends of the loop side by side, instead of together, they won’t make a big lump in the side seam.

My next project is to clean my house. I’m tracking little purple threads and loops everywhere 🙂 It’s almost the weekend – I hope it’s safe and pleasant for all.

Ciao! Coco

  1. My goodness Coco – coats, kaftans and robes, Oh My! ….Whatever next?
    Looks truly cosy and you look super relaxed wearing it.
    You may remember coming home from corporate life and shedding the suit and high heels to wrap up at home in something just like this. It always signifies a change of pace and mindset.

    1. LOL I think I started shedding my suit and shoes before I was even in the door! Next – I ordered a bunch of fabric for fall jackets. All are fuzzy, one is a walnut brown sherpa!! Sucker for punishment 🙂
