Hey there. Just a quick post today to ask you guys for some suggestions of fabric.
Before I get ahead of myself here’s the backstory:
My mom has always wanted a beautiful chenille bathrobe – but she is very picky. Over the summer she purchased a lovely french blue & white, vintage chenille bedspread. Now she’s a great seamstress too… but she has somehow commissioned me to turn the fabric into her bathrobe. It’s becoming her Christmas present so it’s a win-win.
My labor and time are precious to me – but I’m happy to make her something she’s always dreamed of & can’t find in the store.
This is the pattern she settled on:
We’re I’m modifying a few aspects of it in order to turn it into the bathrobe of her dreams.
This is where I get to the crux – With all of this bathrobe scheming for my mom, I went and bought the very same bathrobe pattern for my very own! I couldn’t help it. heh
I’m intending on making a bathrobe for myself during the same time I’m making my mom’s bathrobe. I figured why not?! Plus it will keep me motivated to finish.
But…. I have no fabric for it. I’m planning on making the full-length version and will also be lengthening the sleeves. As far as fabric goes I’m really open to any suggestions you have.
I just want something feminine but also warm for the winter. And I also don’t really feel like adding a lining to it. But that’s the only criteria I have. (Just NO fleece please!!!)
Thoughts anyone?? I’m pretty open to suggestions & could use some help on this one. Just don’t know where to start.
