Modern Robe in Valley of the Kings

We were asked to make a sample robe in this beautiful Robert Kaufman fabric.  Instead of cutting the collar from the same fabric, the customer wanted a contrasting collar along that would match the belt belt.  We think this turned out beautifully, and it gives the robe an entirely different look. The contrasting collar took an addition 1/2 yard of gold fabric; so, for the collar and belt, we used a total of one yard of gold fabric.  We've now added this as an option in the Modern Robe Pattern.


 


Both fabrics are a dream to sew with: heavy, luxurious cotton with a wonderful hand.


Fabrics:  Valley of the Kings Jewel by Robert Kaufman Fabrics ETJM-10933-201 and Timeless Treasures GM-c1334 Tan.
