The Green Robe Part 2

Hello Readers. Remember this beauty of a robe? It is time for the second half of this project. 

The string ties and the length gave me the idea of a wrap skirt or pareu. I sewed the raw edge along the top cut. 

I made a couple darts along the back to bring in the waist a little. And I cut off the inner ties. I didn't need them.

Oh look, a dart up close!

That's it. I just wrapped it around my waist and I was finished. I couldn't decide whether to go long or short. What do you think?

What to do with the scrap? A scarf?

Thanks for reading, now go make something fabulous for yourself.

Both. Make it so it can fold under and be short on warm days and long on cool days. I have great faith in your sewing abilities!

Great idea - although I've had wrap skirts in the past, it somehow has never occurred to me that I could SEW one. Why??
