So, I hopped on the figurative bandwagon and bought Dana's robe pattern-it is stinking cute and so easy to make. (besides the terry cloth fibers I inhaled...I jest... ;) Sadie is taking swimming classes this summer, so I figured it was the smart thing to do, this way, she can wear her towel, cause how many almost 3 year olds do you know who can keep a towel wrapped around them?
Yeah, none? Me neither.
Just don't look closely at my bias tape stitches (oh wait, most of you can't! muwhahaha), I usually pride myself on my sewing-on of the bias tape, but the stitches are wandering all over the place. Stay put, guys. You're making me look bad.
Nonetheless, it came together nicely and was fun to customize with the bias tape I made...I cut out the pieces to line the hood, but of course cut it out wrong so had to scrap that. My bad. Didn't cut out the fabric right sides facing.
The pattern is fabulously and clearly written and has great info and tips for sewing with the terry cloth towels. I highly recommend it. 3 stars. Var nice.
