So here it is in all it’s glory….
I’ve sweated blood over this dressing gown, not to mention having said some rude words and using my bodge skills to their utmost. It pretty much turned out more or less how I intended, there were just some large diversions around the houses on the way. At the end of a day considering this is made from a ginormous ‘second’ towel that has sat under my sewing niche chair for oh, maybe a decade, it isn’t bad. Don’t look too closely, there are definitely flaws in the toweling and some stains that I imagine will probably wash out – oh and it doesn’t bear much of a resemblance to the pattern I was attempting to follow….except that well…it is a functioning dressing gown at the end of the day!
The Liberty trim makes it I think…but I did waste a fair bit along the way with my ineptitude, which was a shame, but apparently couldn’t be helped.
I should like to finish by saying that despite what photographic evidence may suggest, I am not as big as the side of a house…I’m wearing jeans and a jumper underneath as autumn was switched on rather dramatically two days ago in these parts.
Anyway, I’m now feeling very smug as I have won the dressing gown battle and relieved my stash of a very high volume item, which is no bad thing!
Enjoy your weekend!
