I made this bathrobe as a gift for my friend’s new baby. I’ve used the pattern previously with great results, and it can be completed in a matter of a few hours!
Terrycloth fabric and thread; heavy duty machine needle to replace the one that I snapped in the process! (French seams at the bottom corners made it pretty thick for stitching through.)
This is a McCall’s pattern which I found is now discontinued, but any infant’s robe pattern can be easily modified to work. This one featured a lined hood and ties sewn into the side seams. To get the same look, simply sew the side seams along with the bottom, rounding the corners as you do so.
