Everyone needs a basic robe in their wardrobe and the Fleur Robe delivers. This quick and easy pattern can be made from a variety of fabrics to fit any style or vibe you want. Made here in a gorgeously simple linen, you can make it cozy in a French terry, comfy in a bamboo jersey, or luxurious in your favorite silk charmeuse!
All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 30.
Begin sewing your robe by attaching the front panels at the shoulders and side seams. If using a woven, you can opt for French seams, but if using a knit I’d recommend an overlock stitch.
Create your neck binding, attaching the two pieces at one of the short edges to create the center back seam. Attach it along the neckline and center front of your robe. Here, I used an overlock stitch, like you see below. If desired, you can top-stitch the seam allowance down like you see in the second image.
Create each of your sleeves, sewing up the inside with a French seam. Set them into their respective armsyce and hem the lower edge with a 1/2″ double fold.
Fold the bottom hem of your robe up 1/2″ followed by a full 2″. Pin, stitch into place along the top fold, and press.
Create your pocket by folding the top edge down 1/2″ plus one full inch. Sew along the lower fold and press. Press each of the three raw edges under 1/2″ and press as well.
Pin the pressed pocket into place on your robe and edge stitch the three sides to secure.
Create your belt by folding it in half along the length, placing your fabric face to face. Sew around the raw edges, leaving 2″-3″ open to pull the belt right side out. Clip the seam allowances at the corners, pull right side out, and press. Slip-stitch the small opening closed.
Create two belt loops and bar tack them into place on the waist at your side seams to complete!
