Step 9 Almost done

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. :-)

    Yeah I kinda understood that part, but between which two parts is the big seam supposed to be?

      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.

    What’s the ‘big seam visible on the outside’ you’re talking about, the one where should be added the seam tape? (sorry if it’s something obvious, I’m not native speaker so the English terms are bit unfamiliar)

      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…

    Hi, I have just been through your pattern & intructions & would like to thank you for sharing. I was about to do my own pattern & think i was going to over complicate it & how to do the hood was stumping me (not a fan of making clothes, although i studied fashion & design, which is why I alter them) but your pattern has sorted it for me & looks great to follow!! I’m sure will save me lots of time, although I will fully line it as i just prefer things that way. Hopefully it will be finished in time for my son to wear for Halloween. Thanks again
