riding the wave of success – the owl and the pussycat robe

After the success of youngest daughter’s robe, oldest daughter’s had to be made – I was striking while the iron was hot!

Despite a myriad of gorgeous summer motifed beach towels on offer, oldest daughter was swayed by her favourite motif – owls.

Using the same technique, I made up the robe with two front pieces and a back in the same design. This meant I had to find something else to bind the front and, as luck would have it, some ribbon I inherited from my husband’s late Great Aunt (who also kept everything) was a perfect match

To make it slightly different and perhaps a bit more sophisticated for oldest daughter I ribbon topped the pockets (which I placed across the side seam at the hip instead of on the front) and added turn-up cuffs on the sleeve with a ribbon and button decoration, as well as the belt loops, belt and hanging thing at the neck.

Oldest daughter is a natural model! She too will be wearing this robe for years before she grows out of it – haven’t quoted Edward Lear yet….

all done!
