I'm thrilled to be back again this week to announce another new product for Spring — dressing gowns!
These have been in the making for a very long time (I made my first one back in 2012), so I'm both excited and relieved that these are finally ready!
And just in time for Mother's Day. But these would also make great gifts for bridesmaids, new or expecting mothers, or just to get your bestie through a rough patch. Sometimes we all need something soft and sexy to make us feel beautiful.
They're a one-size-fits-all, knee-length kimono style that drapes beautifully off the shoulder. Prefer a shorter sleeve? They look equally as cute rolled up.
Currently available in five different floral prints and made of a beautifully soft and lightweight cotton called voile. It feels almost like silk, but breathes and washes like cotton. Triple win.
After some testing, I chose to sew all of the robes with French seams. This method completely encloses the raw edge, which maximizes comfort (no itchy serging against your bare skin) and minimizes fraying (a concern with such a delicate fabric).
There's a little loop on the back so you can hang it up on a hook easily. I like to store the belt in there sometimes too, as there are no belt loops.
I also chose to include a set of "modesty" ties on the inside of the robe. You may not always choose to tie them, but they do prevent wardrobe malfunctions in front of the mailman.
