All of my clothes (and yours I assume) are created for different reasons. Some meet a need, others are just for fun.
This is a project born out of fabric love. My local boutique got some of the Art Gallery Fabrics Decadence Collection Paon Plumes Royal rayon. Like a sailor lured by the Sirens, it beckoned to me, singing an irresistible song of a luxurious robe.
I heeded the call.
This robe is a modified Kochi Kimono by Papercut Patterns. It’s a nice pattern with optional ties and pockets. I’ve made 2 robes and a jacket from it and enjoy them all.
For this decadent version, I lengthened it by 8 inches and added 2 patch pockets but no ties. The seams are all French seams.
It’s wonderful. The rayon softy billows when I walk. It feels luxurious and light. And the fabric is so pretty! I feel fancy when I wear it.
Thanks for reading ♥️
