Sewing Project | M4320 Fleece Robe Pattern Review

 

Here is my fleece robe sewing project!

I completed this fleece robe sewing project for a while now and have been wearing my pretty pink robe almost daily. It is perfect for just lounging around the house or just sitting back reading a book. Best of all, you don’t have to make a lot of fit adjustments and alterations! This robe is rated quick and easy to sew!

If you are thinking about tackling this sewing project there are a few simple changes that are highly recommended before sewing this robe.

  1. Check the finished length of the robe compared to your height. You may need to shorten or lengthen it. “I personally had to shorten the pattern about 2 inches before putting it together.”
  2. Understitch the facing of the robe to prevent the facing from rolling out.

I even made the slippers!

Nice and comfy

About the slippers.

I wish I would have added an extra layer of batting to the soles of the slippers for a little more cushioning. It is fine with just two layers but an extra two layers would have made it perfect.

Because you are sewing on multiple layers of very thick fabric it is recommended to invest in a walking foot. You don’t necessarily need it but it will make sewing your slippers so much easier.

Pattern Review:

Was the pattern easy to sew?  Yes, It is perfect for beginners and should take an experienced seamstress less than 2 hours to make.

What did you like or dislike about the pattern?  I love the finished product! The length needed adjustments. I am 5’4″, this pattern was created for someone taller since it is a unisex pattern. Overall the instructions are easy to follow. Rated “Very Easy”.

Fabric Used:  Pink Fleece

Would you sew it again? Yes, I am thinking about sewing another one for my daughter.
