Whether in summer or winter, these cute and cuddly robes promise sweet dreams for your favorite doll. The unique construction allows for the robe’s versatility in that it is fully lined and therefore reversible; it has pockets in the side seams and carrier loops to keep the belt tie in place. Different fabrics were used with each version of the robe, fleece for the long robe with long sleeves; waffle weave for the short robe with short sleeves, and flannel for the long robe with short sleeves. All were lined with satin; however, the choice of fabric is entirely yours.Supplies Needed:

This was a fun project and turned out beautifully. I used Minky for the outside and satin inside. Very elegant. Found some bunny slippers and she was all set.
This was a relatively easy pattern to follow. I did not have enough fabric (from a couple of summer stretch tops) to line it fully, so I half lined the fronts to make the revers collar, and used non-woven soft interfacing to stabilise that and stabilise the collar. I also stitched the arm and side seams in one continuous seam. Overall a very good design.
I had several requests for this robe. Easy to make and I embroidery a rose on it. Perfect touch.
Have only made the long robe with long sleeve so far. After doing the first one and figuring it all out it is easier when making more. Making flannel pajama's and nightgowns to match the flannel linings of the fleece robes. Also making matching slippers
I also have the pattern. Here is a U Tube video that I saw ages ago for applying a lining to a coat(housecoat) or a dress. The lady that uses this method is incredible. .... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DeJ4H0ac9M
