Hooded robe with raindrops
Make a hooded robe from a free robe pattern.
We lost our robe approximaly at the same time Melly Sews published her Sleepy Robe pattern, just a week before Kids Clothes week – perfect timing! This robe pattern is so easy, and imagine…it is FREE and yet, comes in 4 sizes – 18m/2T, 3T/4T, 5/6 and 7/8!
I did have to do some changes to the pattern, because we’ll be using this for swimming and hooded robe is a must. Fabric I used was actually a SKÄRET Bath Sheet from Ikea. I tried to keep all possible original seems and I was really lucky with the hood, because I had an old hoodie, or part of it to be more exact (I used the sleeves already for these sweats) and the hood fit perfectly to this robe. I lined it with pieces of the towel and I must say that is the best feature. We already tested it and it does wanders for that wet hair after swimming lesson. Zipper was a practical choice, somehow belts don’t work for us yet. P can’t be botheres to tie it, se we usually end up losing it or pulling it all over the floor.
String of the hood is a T-Shirt yarn I made not long ago. Since the hoodie I used to make this great tobe hooded also had pockets, I decided to use those up to and add a splash of the same colour to the tobe body as well. They are very practical to put swimming googles and a hat away while he is waiting for his class (which does not happend to often, because I am the kind of mum who is always late) or at the end of the class, when his head is already nicely tucked into the fluffy, warm hood.
