I'm back with another free pattern Friday, after a brief hiatus! I've got an extremely versatile pattern which can be made in almost any woven fabric, is easy to make, easy to fit & perfect for this summer weather.
The Quince Day Robe from Seamwork comes with two versions—a duster and a jacket—plus optional details that can be mixed and matched to create 16 variations from one pattern. Just take a look at the line drawings below, to see all the permutations that are possible with this pattern.
The robe has dropped shoulders, patch pockets that overlap at the side seams (which can be omitted) & can be worn with or without the waist tie. It's great for mixing & matching fabrics, either contrasting, complementary or colourblocking & different fabrics will give it a completely different look to customise the silhouette.
There's no closure on this & basically just straight lines to sew, so perfect for beginners, especially if you choose a nice stable fabric such as a cotton poplin. These Dashwood Studio Woodland Notions fabrics would be perfect in Shibori & Birchwood below.
