This robe is one of those, in that I cut it out maybe a year or so ago, and it sat there gathering dust since then. The fabric is an unidentified clearance upholstery fabric from JoAnn's, with a nice texture, but it frays like no other. The pattern is intended for a lightweight cotton, and uses french seams throughout, but there is no way that was going to work with this thicker fabric, so my first step was to serge all the edges. I sewed it up basically like the pattern instructions (Purl Soho Women's Robe), but I left off the pockets and I sewed the belt ties into the side seams, instead of having it go all the way around the back, and shortened it a bit. I also changed up the sleeves, because I felt they were a little skinny with my fabric, so I made them shorter and wider than the pattern called for.
