Kwik Sew 3644 Robe

Have you ever been in love with a garment?  Well, that's me and the Kwik Sew 3644 Robe.  I have been wanting to make a robe to match my nightgown I made here and here.

I've only sewn a few Kwik Sew patterns and this one makes me think why have I stayed away?  The pattern was easy to sew, the directions were very clear and the robe came out perfect!

Fitting Chart

I loved that the Kwik Sew pattern was marked with ALL three measurements (Bust, Waist & Hips).  After a little thinking I added 1/2" at the bust seam allowances, 5.75" at the hip seam allowances and 1" at the sleeve seam allowances.  Nothing unusual for my shape.

Piping on Sleeve Cuff

The directions were clear and easy to follow.  It took me about two days to sew the robe.  I tried to take my time, and I even added piping!

I used a king size flat sheet I had in my sheet bin.

The robe is a great fit and I love that it wraps completely in the front.  Great coverage.

Until next time......................

  1. It's a great looking robe - and smart to use a sheet!

  2. I love that, especially with the piping--really stands out--in a good way. I need a lightweight wrap robe. Never would have thought to use a sheet. It's the right weight and texture for comfort.

    1. I have hidden in the closet a flannel sheet set I might sew up for a winter robe & nightgown set. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thank you. I was worried about working with the piping but it went together easy and I'm so happy I tried it.
