Might be sitting in a chilly basement office all day long, might be genetics, it might be my destiny to not live where it's below freezing half of the year.
The Rebecca Page Family Bathrobe is a really versatile robe/housecoat/bathrobe from newborn to unisex adult sizing.
It has several fun options:
- Pockets (YOU NEED POCKETS!)
- Hanging Loop
I love that I was able to use both woven AND knits with mine - especially since the 2 metres of fabric I had ran out before I could cut my sleeves. Comfy DBP (Double Brushed Poly) to the rescue!
My polka dot DBP was from Water Tower Textiles, and the fun Canadian outdoors baby fleece was from Okee Dokee Fabrics.
It's not fitted, so I just went with my bust measurement, despite my bust and waist/hips with Rebecca Page patterns going from a Medium to X-Large grading typically.
I had no issues sewing it up quickly, and really like length - I took 4" off the length as I'm only 5'-2" and didn't want it too much past my knees. It's designed for a height of 5'-8" - not the typical height design for RP patterns - so do check this before cutting.
It gives me just enough wrap without feeling like I'm in a Snuggie (adult blanket that has arms in it).
I paired my robe with my altered Pippa Pants and my Strappy Cami - a good bedtime combo, if I don't say so myself.
Overall, I love that it's a bundled pack - where one pattern fits all!
