Hey y’all, more from my vintage sheet kick – today I did a vintage sheet robe. I could not resist this sheet when I saw it on Etsy – it’s such a pretty and happy print. And lucky me, it’s part of a full set, so I still have more of it in my stash.
The fabric is the perfect weight for a light wrap – just enough drape and just enough crispness. And the print is just the perfect mix for me of vintage nostalgia and modern sensibility. Like the best parts of times past without the burden of actually living in them.
I used my easy robe tutorial to make this. The only change I made to this one from the original was to make the robe knee length instead of past knee length, so that this is more appropriate for spring/summer temperatures (that have already arrived in Texas).
One of the things I like about making my robe this way is that the sleeves aren’t huge wings to contend with like a lot of robes. While those might look elegant, I always find myself rolling them up out of the way to keep them from dragging in my food or across the fabric I’m cutting.
