    Hi,
    for price reasons I used polyester for this commission, but using a lighter woolen cloth (like for suits) for outer fabric and house colour, lined with a taffetta lining fabric or a light cott…

    Hi again!
    Sorry I really can’t at the moment, the pattern is at home (Germany) and I’m away, working in Croatia!
    Also as I bought the pattern here in Germany, I fear the instructions would only b…

    Hi! Thank you for the compliment :)
    It’s polyester taffeta with a sort of crinkly texture, which I probably wouldn’t buy anymore now (but it was what I could afford and it worked for the dress). I…

    There are no seam allowances, but then again the drawings are not really to scale, but more a sort of diagramm… Hope it’ll work out!

    The “pattern” isn’t made to be printed, it’s meant to be illustrations for my drafting instructions. Get paper, a right angle and a pencil and start drafting! To help you with things like the armho…

    Hi! I’m glad you liked my pattern and were able to make your robe! And I’d absolutely love to see it :)

    I’m sorry you had problems with this.
    But let me explain: The point with these illustrations is – they’re not supposed to be used as pattern pieces. I state at the beginning of this step that I wil…

    As there isn’t a real pattern. there’s no seam allowance included. So whatever suits you best!
    Goo luck making it, I’m sure our grandson will be an awesome wizard!

    You can of course use cotton, as long as it drapes nicely! We used polyester because it’s cheap ;)

    I printed it at 100%. That should leave a bit of space at the edges of the paper to glue them together.

    You have just attached the coloured fabric along the outer edge, this seam (or the seam tape) is to attach the coloured stripe’s open side to the robe.

    A big visible seam is what I didn’t want, so I used the seam tape instead. You can just sew the coloured fabric in place, if you want, though, seams don’t really show up on black that much…

    Okay, I’ll try :)
    In this step you should put the two front pieces you just cut out on top of each other (right sides facing) and sew along the 2 seams of the hood. This closes the seam that runs o…

    I made several different lengths. I always measured the girls from shoulder to ankle (like it says on the very left). Have fun making your robe! :)

    Yes, you stitch along the entire edge. You might consider using a different bobbin colour matching the house colour.

    It isn’t any different from sewing jersey or other knits. I have been terrified of those for quite a while but with a well adjusted overlock machine it’s super quick and easy! Be brave! ;)

    This dress was inspired by finding the fabrics. The top is linen with some sparkly threads woven in, which gives it a really subtle shimmer and the skirt ist a wonderfully flowy silk. Both of those…
