The Dressing Robe from Helen’s Closet is one of my favorite robe patterns.  I am particularly partial to  the front band detail, which most other robe patterns do not have.

Choose a beautiful silk fabric for your dressing robe – something that will make you feel fabulous every time you put it on

When it comes to selecting a dressing robe, silk and satin fabrics ought to be on the top of your list. With just the right balance of matte and shine, silk dressing robes are sure to make you feel fabulous each time you put them on. Nothing is more glamorous than walking around in silk – it’s like wearing liquid luxury! Not only do silk and satin fabrics look beautiful, but they drape nicely too which makes them excellent for creating an effortless silhouette. The perfect silk fabric will make for exquisite Hollywood vibes that even royalty can admire.

Find a sewing pattern that is easy to follow and won’t take forever to sew

Helen’s Closet is the perfect place to get started on your sewing journey, their patterns are geared towards beginner sewists and are very easy to follow! With many beginner and intermediate patterns, Helen’s Closet has something for everyone. I recently used Helen’s Closet to make the fantastic Helen’s Closet Dressing Robe.

(UPDATE: March 30, 2021 – This pattern used to be called the Suki Kimono – here is the blog post on why it was changed. As my video was filmed before the pattern name changed, it still uses the old pattern name. Please note that I am very happy this change was made).

Despite the fact that the pattern features an interesting collar along the front – it was still surprisingly easy to follow, and it didn’t take me forever to create my masterpiece! So, if you’re looking for a versatile garment that is still simple enough for even a novice sewer – this pattern from Helen’s Closet has exactly what you’re looking for.

I find that this pattern is one I come back to again and again.  First off, it is a very cozy robe and when made with a satin silk, like this Paisley fabric from Minerva.  I often find myself loungin in it when I work from home.

I love that the sleeves go just past my elbows.  This way, if I decide to do some sewing in my robe, (let’s all be honest, we have all done this before) then the sleeves do not get in the way.

Another element that is important in any robe is having the right sized pockets.  My favorite pocket pattern is still the Charm patterns Lamour Dress, but this one is just as roomy.  In fact, I did not switch the pocket out like I usually do.

Cut out your fabric pieces using the pattern as a guide

Working on sewing a dressing robe may feel daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’ll become second nature. A key step to sewing any clothing item is to master the art of cutting out your fabric pieces using the pattern as a guide—this process saves time while sewing and will make your sewing look more professional and polished in the end. Sure, that sheet of paper with all its scrambled curves can be confusing to work around, but if you keep at it you’ll be rocking that new robe like a pro in no time!

The only issue I had with this pattern was that when I fully wrap on me, the bottom hem is a bit uneven.  (Check out the video to see what it looks like).
