an out-of-this-world men’s robe

March 6, 2010

I never got around to blogging this cool robe I made for my husband for Xmas:

space robe

It’s from a 1957 Simplicity men’s robe pattern:

Simplicity 2312

With dressing gown, towelling bathrobe and smoking jacket versions!! I made the dressing gown view from some JoAnn’s flannel. It was a dream to sew, he loves his robe, and my 5-year-old loved picking out the fabric. I seriously recommend this pattern — I will be making every version eventually! More photos and details on my blog!

  1. That is one very cool dressing gown! And I'll second how good that pattern is. I've used it to make my own husband a couple of dressing gowns – a tweed winter one with purple piping, and summer red linen one with white spots. The winter one I made is fabulous, if I say so myself, but your one is equally fabulous!

  2. What a great robe! I have some vintage men's patterns that I want to make for my hubs. This fun robe has inspired me!… Does your hubs smoke a pipe? lol
