I had two cotton robes that I had purchased as guest robes, but after about four years only one of them had ever been used.
So I decided to redo one of them into a robe for Arden.
They're nice organic cotton - I bought them while on a business trip in Thailand. I used to be an internal auditor for my company and traveled all over the world. I have some pretty cool purchases from the trips I've taken.
I started by using a seam ripper and removing the tie and the pockets. Then I used a tunic length hoodie of Arden's to get the basic shape.
I sewed and serged the seams and reattached the shortened tie to the new waist. I also made a hood and attached that to the collar. I think I'll keep this for a Christmas present for her. Now I just need to decide if I'm keeping it white, or dying it. Pink, maybe? I have a little bit of the original robe fabric left, so I might make a little wrap for Hadley.
