    A Quilter's Dressing Gown/Wrap :)

    Here are a couple of pics of a Dressing Gown I made for a friend for Christmas.
    To put a quilter's spin on it ... "ragged" edges, all 'round ...
    along with quilted borders from top to bottom, around the neck, on the sleeves and pocket.

    I used a combed cotton, so warm and cozy, yet not bulky.
    Amazingly, I got the plaid matched fairly well ... thanks to the Janome 6600's AccuFeed!

    Now to make one for myself!!
    HAPPY NEW YEAR'S Everyone!!

    I absolutely love this. Did you use a pattern & would care to share the name? Thanks

    This is lovely and it even has a pocket which I can't seem to do without. Your friend is a lucky lady.

    Thanks everyone!! ...

    I started with the free pattern at Connecting Threads, and then made my own improvisations, starting with only one layer of fabric.

    It's "sew" simple and quick to make.

    I'll look forward to seeing what the rest of you create.


    Shelbie ... me too! I "need" pockets in everything. Again, wasn't part of the pattern, but one of my add-ins! Lots of snow up there in "High"? Only about 3" here, with a fine show coming down again now.

    QuiltE ... it looks great. I love the ragged edges and the plaid. So manly. Yes ... you deserve one too!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Thanks DHMom!!
    I hadn't planned the ragged look, but as I was working with it, and auditioning the border sizes, it just kind of jumped at me. Originally I'd bought it for a nightgown for myself ... Little House on the Prairie style. I only wish I had more of that same fabric for my own housecoat and/or nightgown but so looks like it won't happen. Although ... if I could find some blue flannelette that coordinates with it, I do have enough of the plaid for the yoke. hhmmmm? Reason to go shopping, I guess!

    I love this dressing gown! I will have a look at the pattern and see if I can find something suitable to make one for myself. I only have these heavy ones which I don't like.

    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
