Open robe to go with the white round gown worn to brunch at Grand Island Mansion with friends
dressed in Regency.
Lavender printed cotton with purple poly cotton lining fastens at front with hooks and eyes and has covered buttons on front and at sleeve cuffs. Skirt was bag lined and gathered to bodice. Edges and seams were prick stitched to keep lining from showing.
Pattern based on Simplicity S8941 .
Might be better to make sleeves two pieces and shape them differently. These sleeves want arms want to bend and not be straight down. Added an inch to the bottom of the bodice front and tapered to the sides to add more cup.
Shortened sleeves 1" and reshaped near the elbow.
Flatlined bodice body with twill.
Added covered buttons to the front and to the sleeve cuffs.
Baglined the skirt.
Prickstitched some of the bodice and edges to keep lining from curling over.
