Seraya Robe – PDF Pattern
The Seraya Robe is a gorgeous easy cover-up, designed to drape elegantly and keep you oh-so-cool and comfy. A super simple sew, you can whip up one of these beauties in a couple of hours and then waft around feeling like the goddess of loungewear! Choose between two lengths (a thigh-skimming short or an ankle-skimming long) and then simply slip over your head (no closures necessary) and tighten the drawstring to fit as closely or as loosely as you desire.
The Robe is named after Seraya, the beautiful place in Bali that my sister (and sometime Nina Lee model) was staying when she became engaged – wearing an early sample of this very pattern!
Suitable for confident beginners – skills required include creating buttonholes.
Light-weight woven fabrics e.g. cotton lawn, voile, viscose, silk, crepe.
90cm / 35 inches of bias binding, 12 or 15mm wide
A small strip of fusible interfacing, to stabilise the buttonholes
A safety pin for feeding the waist tie through
