I'm sewing a bed gown for maman, bed gown is a dressing gown meets bed jacket. While she is recuperating at home, she can at least rock out the house in a vivid robe.
take one existing dressing gown
add sewn patchwork outer shell.
I like that it is over patterned and i'm loving the purple/lilac/gold/mustard and I think the cream dressing gown will tone it down, so rather than vulgar, it's striking.
I stood infront of a wall of fabrics for a hour, before finding a combo of four that i liked...ransacked the wall, because originally i wanted vibrant crimson/scarlet, then thought maybe soothing aqua/lightblue tones.
