Ribbon Detailed Robe

 I’ve got a fun way to personalize a project today! I recently used a sewing pattern for the very first (and possibly last!) time to make a robe for my daughter. If you’ve seen some of my May Arts projects it’s possible you’ve noticed there are quite a few on which I’ve used a sewing machine. The machine isn’t the problem- it’s that sewing pattern with the EASY printed on it. I think that pattern was mocking me!

Regardless, I persevered. It may have taken me a LONG time, but here’s the result:

Ribbon Detailed Robe

I’ve been told that the fabric I chose was a big part of the problem- but now that it’s done it is so delicious that I’ve almost forgotten that pattern mocking me. Almost.  🙂 

Here’s a close up of the fun ribbon detail:

I had my daughter pick the ribbon she wanted for the belt; she chose the 1.5” pink/white striped ribbon. We then added that same ribbon to the pocket, and 3/8” ivory lace ribbon along the bottom. It adds the sweetest detail!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’ve been inspired to add some ribbon to your next project!  🙂

    I think the fabric was the cause of your pain & suffering but I have to say that – WOW – it was well worth it!!! … I just want to reach out & touch the fabric and think your daughter made a great choice for her belt, the stripe makes the perfect contrast, great texture too!!!
