I recall a coworker once told me that I reminded him of Auntie Mame. I was not sure how to take that comment, so I chose to think of it as a compliment. With that thought in mind, I made myself a robe that I think she may have worn one of her most casual days.
The fabric is a silk that I purchased years ago - so I consider it free fabric!
The sleeves are full and amusing to wear. I am reminded of what my Grandmother would have said "it my be pretty, but you can't fry eggs in it!" Well, Gran, I won't be frying eggs in this one!
The pattern is Louise Cuttings East Meets West.
If you have not purchased and made one of her patterns - you are missing a treat. It is worth buying the pattern just for the directions.
