Free Pattern Friday 5/08/22: Quince Day Robe - Seamwork

Aug 05 2022 0 Comments

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.  

A denim will give it a utilitarian feel, a long version in a  flowy viscose would be a great beach cover up or it can be worn as a duster over jeans.

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.

 
This 8oz light blue washed denim would be great for the shorter version or we have some towelling to make a bathrobe with it.
 
We've got lots of options for a long swishy viscose version and you can find our current selection of viscoses and rayons here.
Two final suggestions for a beach cover-up would be this salmon Snakeskin print viscose crepe & Sheer Spheres which is a viscose & polyester blend. Both of them are perfect for sitting by the pool with a cocktail in your hand.
 
So there you have it - a lovely, easy to sew, easy to wear versatile garment to wear as a jacket, cover up or robe & we can print your pattern for you to make it even easier!
