Terry's Epic Skull Robe

I finally finished Terry's Robe!

I know - it took forever.

But it's epic and it has skulls on it, so - WIN!

Here is Terry being epic in his new robe.

Here he is doing his best Price Is Right girl impression. "Oooh check out this new robe. Made out of polar fleece. Features include 2 front pockets, belted in the middle with wide magician-like collar and sleeves."

And here he is doing his best, "I'm an old man pervert in my bathrobe stance." HAHAHA! All Terry said while I was typing this post was, "So you're putting that one up are ya?" Me: "Yes - you don't want me to?" Terry: "I don't care."

He'll care now! hahaha... or not... he really is embarrassed by nothing. Knowing him, he'll post this as his new Facebook profile pic.

I used Simplicity pattern 5931 for this robe. I'll be making one for myself to wear at the hospital as well. I actually followed a pattern? What? Too lazy to figure out the design for this one - so pattern it was.

It took so long to make because I was hit with a series of obstacles while making it. First, I had the pattern, but not with me when purchasing the fleece. The lady at the store said that 3.5 metres should be plenty for a robe. She, however, has not seen the size of my awesome, sexy hunk of a husband. So when I got home, I didn't have enough to cut out the sleeves. The pattern calls for 3.9 - gah! So I went back and got some black to do the sleeves and pockets. I think it looks nice. Anyway, I got home and continued with my cutting. Then I realized that my supply of interfacing wasn't enough to cut 2 ginormous facings! Back to the store I went.

After I got it cut out though, it sewed up easy. :)

Close up of the cool fabric. I bet no one will look more badass when he is awoken at 6 a.m. by two rambunctious kids than my husband.

P.S: this robe was supposed to be Terry's birthday present, so happy birthday baby! Love you!
