Aunite Mame revisited

Auntie Mame

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 by Louise CuttingEast 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.

Happy SEWing,
Michele P
