Do the bottom hem.
Then, to not have the lining at the front do whatever it wants, you still have to attach it a little more securely.
And because we don’t want a big seam visible on the outside, it’s best to do that with iron on seam tape, all along the front, down from the shoulders to the hem. It should hit about where I drew the dashed line in the image.
Alternatively you could attach the lining by hand with little stitches.
Sew on two black buttons (about on breast height), one on each side. Also attach a little loop out of black elastic on one side under on of the buttons to close the robe.
Now, last but not least, iron or sew on the badge of the respective house.
All done. :-)
