With one month of summer left, I figured it was time to finish-up my summer projects.
New Beach Robes!
The robes from last year still fit but they were so faded from tons of use and tons of washing. So this year I went with stripes (thank you IKEA and TJ Maxx)
The kids approved and were happy to try them out (especially since Owen thought he was a Jedi Master).
and just when you thought the robes weren't stripey enough....
We've got stripes underneath too!
Changes I made from last years Beach Robes:
• Added a bit of length to the Large size for both kids (I traced the top 2/3 of the pattern, then shifted the pattern down a couple inches and continued tracing the rounded corners etc)
• Went with short sleeves rather than long. We live in hot TX.
• Used T-shirt jersey knit in Owen's hood and seersucker in Lucy's.
If you've been on the fence about making a Beach Robe, you've still got time!
I'm putting all MADE patterns on sale!
