In a post at See How We Sew, I was thrilled to read an enthusiastic review of my Modern Robe sewing pattern. Here is a photo of the Modern Robe made by quilter, author and teacher Laura Nownes:
Those of you who are quilters may recognize Laura Nownes as the co-author (with Diana McClun) of Quilts! Quilts! Quilts!!! The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking. Laura offers quilt patterns and instruction on her website, Laura Nownes.
Here is what Laura said about the Modern Robe: "There are many wonderful details that make this robe special: a stand-up collar, side seam pockets, a hanging loop, inside ties, reinforced facings AND there are no set-in seams! During construction I found myself enjoying the design and sewing process so much that I decided not to skip one single step. It is simply wonderful just as Marina has designed it. Being particular about patterns, I must say that I was extremely pleased with the clarity and thoroughness of her instructions. They are well written and include easy-to-follow diagrams. Although this robe looks wonderful in Asian-inspired fabrics, it can take take on a thoroughly modern look with today’s fabrics."
A big thanks to Laura for featuring Modern Robe and for sharing the photo. If you want to make a robe in fabrics of your own choosing, you can purchase a pattern at one of our distributors listed on this page.
