Today I finally had a chance to make something for myself. I had a good 5 hours, or so, this afternoon to draft and sew my new little creation. Here’s the progress so far. I should have it finished in a few more hours tomorrow.
This was the inspiration. However, as usual, I’m changing it a bit.
I fell in love with this fabric at Fabric Expo a few months ago. It’s so light and floaty.
I decided to leave it unlined and flat fell the seams. I’m very happy with the results so far. I also constructed the back pleats in the same fashion as the infamous Janet Arnold Open Robe.
All that is left is hemming the robe and attaching the sleeves. I plan to do capped sleeves like the inspiration robe.
So, there you go, finally a normal post :D Hopefully there will be more like it to come.
Have a lovely weekend.
