My latest tutorial for the Sewing Republic is live – learn how to make yourself a Customized Lounge Robe. The great thing about this project is that it’s designed by you – plug in your measurements, determine your length (I made mine a fun kimono length), and make your own ‘pattern’!
One thing you may notice about this project is that there are no fabric requirements listed in the materials section. Since this robe is customized, your unique body measurements and desired robe length paired with the fabric width can greatly vary the amount of material needed. Consequently, it’s a good idea to take your measurements first so you can determine how much fabric you’ll need – this way you won’t end up with too little to start with or too much material left over. Cant find the fabric you want or the width you need? You can skip heading to the store and raid your linen closet instead (this is a great project to use up sheets or fleece blankets).
