Modern Robe in Windham Fabrics

Happy 2016 to all !  I wanted to share a project made with our Modern Robe sewing pattern in one of Windham Fabrics' newest collections: Good Hair Day by Kim Andersson. The robe was made by Pati Fried at See How We Sew, and featured in a January 2016 blog hop.  Here is a photo of the robe from the Good Hair Day lookbook:


Pati Fried says:  "...when Laura [Nownes] and I were asked to create something out of this line to share in the blog hop, we jumped at the chance. What a perfect opportunity to embrace our girly side. Hmmm, combs, blowdryers, ribbons and curls – how about a girl’s pajama night? Laura chose a Butterick #B6225 pattern to make a pair of pajamas. I chose Modern Robe by The Modern Robe Company."

The turquoise Pati chose for the belt is a perfect complement to the red-orange fabric.  We love the way in which Pati added a flange of blue alongside the collar.  The Good Hair Day prints feature hair combs, bobby pins and other cute designs:


 

You can see Pati Fried wearing her Modern Robe at the See How We Sew blog hop post, and see the whole Good Hair Day collection - including several free quilt patterns - at Windham Fabrics.  Here is a free quilt pattern by Stacey Day:
