Hello Paisley: My Almada Robe from Seamworks Magazine


Apologies for it being so long since my last post. I've been a bit busy getting my Bachelors degree in Digital Marketing, doing an internship, and caring for 3 kids, but that doesn't mean I've stopped sewing. It's just been hard to find the time to do photos, but I will be catching you up on all my makes in the past few months, including a wonderful dress pattern I got to test, oh in March!
Let's talk about this Paisley Almada robe from Seamworks Magazine, this has to be one of my happiest makes! it hangs on our linen closet door, and whenever I catch a glimpse of it I get giddy. It looks just as beautiful on a hook as it does on! Now I am not a seductive boudoir kind of girl, I wish I was, but man it is hard to photograph a robe without making it a little pseudo-seductive.

This beauty features hong kong, bias bound seams and is made from a treated crinkly cotton I got from Hancock Fabrics before they closed; sniffle. I ironed out all the wrinkles so I would have enough fabric to make the robe, and I'm afraid that if I wash it, it'll revert back to being wrinkly.

Does anyone know if that will happen?

I used this same pattern to make a silk kimono robe for a wonderful friend for her birthday, I just lengthened it to make it floor length, and she loves it.
I love Seamworks Magazine! I currently do not hold a subscription any longer, mostly because my pattern collection is a little crazy, and I need to tone it down a bit, but I have loved working with their patterns, and highly recommend them! Even if you don't have a subscription you can read the magazine in all its informative glory.

Their patterns are supposed to be made in under 3 hours, but I have yet to hit that mark. Have you tried Seamworks Magazine? How long did it take from print-finish?
