I once vowed I wouldn't sew another terry cloth robe. Plans change.
Decades ago, I made a terry cloth robe similar to this one that I wore out. It's a messy project. But I missed the terry cloth robe with the hood trimmed with lace. A couple of years ago during Mitchell Fabric closing sale I picked up this cozy terry cloth. And yes, it's taken this long to get to this project. I don't know why. It's an easy peasy project and something that I've wanted to replace for quite some time.
I'm so happy to finally have this project checked off the want-to-make list.
The pattern is out-of-print (OOP) Simplicity 7417, circa 1996. If you come across a copy, I would recommend picking it up even though robe patterns are widely available from the big four pattern companies. This vintage pattern, unlike modern patterns, offers a variety of neckline details and hemline lengths. It was the hooded version, just like the previous make, that I was drawn to. Want a hooded robe and can't find a copy of OOP Simplicity 7417, consider Burda 6740.
