    I make all my bathrobes for the men in my family. I use heavy fleece and make them down to their ankles. Some are wrap and tie, but my husband's favorite is like a caftan with a zipper up the front all the way to his chin. Warm and cozy. We don't keep our house very warm, so he is snug and so am I in my fleece robe. I have McCall's patterns from years back.

    Stretch and sew has a good robe pattern I think the pattern number is 2000. It is very easy to make. I used fleece. It has a lap front and tie. But I used big snaps around the neck and down the front to keep it closed.

    What I've done in the past, was make material from 4" sqs, or whatever suit your fancy, in till I have enough yardage...and cut as normal... not very inventive, but works well...would love to see when you finish...

    I've quilted bodice, collar and cuffs when you could get robe velour. I found some regular velour on sale and will quilt bodice, collar and maybe sleeves using flannel. I just criss-crossed the lines.
    I hate fleece.

    I was given the task of making my Father in law a new lightweight cotton robe. I have been looking but havent found a good shirting type fabric for it...gonna trek out this weekend to find something...bought a pattern as I didnt find anything he would like online for free.
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    [QUOTEhttp://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/08/pure-comfort.htmljuropat;5556868]I was sitting here thinking what I should make for Christmas this year, pillow cases, purses. I don't know why but pop in my mind, BATHROBE. Has anyone made a quilted bathrobe? Pattern to share? I know my dh is in need of a new one but hard to find heavy robes now.[/QUOTE]

    Hi Pat - here is a link to a website I read about here on the board. I think they would. make great gifts for some friends. I can't wait to make one for myself. I will use minke for the inside. http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/08/pure-comfort.html.
