Whitlow robe pattern

Regular price $22.00

Garment Details

The Whitlow robe is a relaxed robe designed for slow and easy mornings. It is the perfect cover-up to throw on as you prepare for the day (or duck out to get the mail in), or to relax on the couch in. It has two length options, one that finishes above the knee, the other below the knee.

The robe features raglan sleeves, a deep overlap (for a great amount of coverage), pockets (in-seam or patch), shaped collar band and a waist sash. Interior waist ties keep the robe nice and secure. The hem is finished with a facing for a beautiful and clean finish. Choose between a cropped sleeve or a longer sleeve with a hem facing.

Seam finishes depend on your fabric choice. Lightweight fabrics are finished with French seams, while thicker fabrics are finished with an overlocker / serger or zig-zag stitch.

This pattern is available in our new extended size range. More details about In the Folds sizing can be found here

Suggested Fabrics

The Whitlow robe is compatible with a wide variety of woven fabrics. For a lightweight robe, consider: linen, linen blends, cotton lawn, sateen, silk charmeuse, viscose, lyocell (rayon) or double gauze.

For a warmer robe, consider terry towelling, waffle weave, cotton flannelette or polar fleece. Please note: for thicker fabrics, you may choose to cut the waist tie pieces (hidden inside the robe) in a lighter-weight fabric.

Fabric requirements and finished garment measurements can be found here.

Notions

  • Coordinating thread

  • Optional: 1.4m (1.6yds) light to mid-weight fusible interfacing

  • Optional: If your fabric is prone to stretching, you may choose to use interfacing tape to stabilise the front opening. Alternatively, tearaway vilene can be used.

    Please note: interfacing is for the collar only. Depending on your fabric and preferences, you may choose not to use interfacing

The pattern is available in both sizes A - J (drafted for a B sewing cup size) and sizes G - P (drafted for a D sewing cup size). Our size charts can be found here.

The Whitlow robe is designed to be relaxed in fit. Select a size based on your high bust measurement. Due to the nature of the design and the amount of ease in the pattern, it is unlikely that you will need to make a bust adjustment if your bust measurement is in a different size bracket than your high bust. It is also unlikely that you will need to grade between pattern sizes due to the nature of the wrap. 

Patterns are drafted for height of 170cm (5'7") and include a ‘lengthen / shorten line’ so you can make adjustments to suit your height.

Fabric requirements and finished garment measurements can be found here.

Pattern includes seam allowances.

The pattern is placed at a Level 1.5 on the In the Folds pattern skill scale, which means you have some basic projects under your belt and are ready for new challenges.

By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: sewing raglan sleeves, sewing French seams (if you choose this seam option), sewing pockets (in-seam or patch), attaching a straight collar and stitching in the ditch.
