Doll Robe for an 18 inch Doll from a Dollar Store Baby Blanket
I also used the pattern for a robe from the Simplicity Crafts pattern #5276. Price on the Envelope is $13.95 USA but I paid less from Walmart approximately $9.00.
The pattern includes several types of PJ's, underwear and shorts, as well as the robe so this pattern is a good investment.
Cutting out the pattern took about ten minutes and though I found the directions too wordy and a bit hard to follow however, I did finally figure out how to make this robe. I left off the pockets and the piping and re-purposed the finished edge of the doll blanket for the robe tie, but other then that I followed the directions pretty much to the "T". It did take me more then 30 minutes to sew only I think because it was my first time making one, I am sure when I make one for Trinity, Laura and Cadence and then some for myself I will be able to make them much quicker. As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
