McCalls 8560- 1960s Robe

Here is my pattern, McCalls 8560, from 1966. I made it out of pink and brown plaid fleece.
I chose the full length robe, as this is meant for fall and winter, and made the sleeves full-length instead of 3/4.

 It has a weird collar that reminds me of Star Trek, but it’s great for a robe! It had very clear instructions, also.

 It only took a few hours to make and it’s one less unused pattern sitting in my cabinet!

    I love this pattern. I've been looking at robe patterns myself. Was the fleece easy to work with?

    Fabulous robe! I've been thinking of making a fleece housecoat myself and your robe is great inspiration.
