Modern Robe made from reclaimed Hawaiian shirts

I've been collecting men's silk Hawaiian shirts for use in sewing projects, and I finally had an occasion to turn them into a robe.   The heavy silk they use for men's shirts is buttery soft and easy to sew.  Here is the finished robe, which I gave to a dear friend.  It is based on a variation of my Modern Robe sewing pattern.

Here is the back of the robe...

This mens' Hawaiian shirt was used for the waist and collar detail on the robe...

  1. Hi there,
    Do you have this variation of the modern robe pattern available for purchase?

    I'm making a robe for a friend, and really like the panel around the waistline!
