New York, New Yo...
When designing the robe, I, Benedikta, imagined big color blocks in primary colors, yellow, blue and red. Now having sewn it up quite some time later we decided on a bit more sophisticated color combination in which everyone following our blog posts had a part in. The solid colors really pronounce the design but I can very well imagine it in a mix of prints or stripes and solids. If our robe would not have been all in silk we would have taken the sleeve part double and added a thin layer of quilting in between with the typical diamond shaped top-stitching. That extra would be a nice idea if the gown is made as a warm cozy Christmas present surprise. Enjoy!
