Snuggly Robes for Winter – Simplicity 7417 Pattern Review

Winter in Louisiana may not be as cold as other parts of the nation, but it still gets colder than I would like.  So, why not make some snuggly robes to stay warm?   I found Simplicity 7417 in my Mom’s pattern stash and appropriated it for my own use.

I made View E in an XS as my muslin, and it is totally wearable.  View E has a hood, belt, patch pockets and cuffed sleeves in the shorter length. I used a black and white Cotton Flannel with music notes all over it.  I did not have enough fabric, so I made the pieces fit by shortening the sleeve and hemming it, instead of having the cuffs.  The pockets blend in on the picture (yay, pattern matching), but they are there and they are a good size.

I decided that I liked it and purchased Red Double sided Fleece to make a View F version.  View F has the same features as E.  It has  the hood, belt, and cuffed sleeves all in a full length version.

For both versions, instead of purchased bias tape, I made matching ties of the designated length from the remaining fabric pieces.  I also used organza as interfacing for the facings instead of fusible. The instructions were pretty simple.  In conclusion, I like both of them and the hoods  are deep enough for all my hair, which is a major plus. 🙂
