Warm woolen dressing gown

Add caption

I managed to finish my warm woolen dressing gown in time
for the cold weather.
(How far away is Spring??)
I decided not to line it afterall. I am making a gown out of the lining instead.
Still deciding whether to have long sleeves or not.

I kept the original blanket stitching as the hem. Originally I did this to the sleeves as well, and the realised they were way too drafty.
So I finished them with a ribbed cuff instead.
I am very pleased with the results - a beautiful woolen gown for a mere $10.
 from an online garage sale.
And a mid season gown for $0 from gifted stretch satin.

  1. Love this gown, Wendy. Let me know if you want to sell it! Warm woollen gowns are so hard to find, and even nice fabric. Found fabric on a US site that would cost me $200 AU to get here!
