KCWC Day 2 – Dressing Gown

This is todays ensemble – as it was in progress:

Dressing gown for Bounce (2.5)

I used a 1979 pattern that I got given in a throw out someone was having recently. It is a size 3 and I had to do a lot of shortening on the length and arms.

Made from polar fleece – purchased and a zip I already owned.

I didn’t gather the cuffs with elastic as in the pattern. It isn’t a perfect job – but  none of my stuff is. However the front is much more even that it appears in the picture!

He wanted to wear it to bed tonight but I hadn’t finished the hemming and shortening at that point.
