  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Wide ribbon
  • Iron on saying (optional)

Let's Get Started

Step 1

Fold the sheet in half and then in half again, then lay it down on a large work surface…or better yet, the floor.

Step 2

Grab a measuring tape and measure your waist. With your thumb on your waist measurement, fold the measuring tape in half and lay it down onto your folded sheet. The 0” measurement should be against the folded edge of the sheet.

Step 3

With your “half-waist” as a guide, cut up the side of the sheet and stop when you get 3/4ths the way up. Then, cutting from the open edge, cut the sleeve. Your finished product will look like this…

Step 4

Grab some pins and pin the cut edges of your robe.

Step 5

Pull out the sewing machine and stitch the edges. The beauty of cotton jersey is that it won’t fray so a single, straight stitch is plenty!

Step 6

Last thing to do! Lay your robe flat on your work surface and cut directly up the front to create an opening. Again – no need to worry about fraying, so leave the edge raw.

Step 7

Now – this last bit of pizzazz is totally optional! I created a cute iron-on for the back of my robe to give it some personality! Iron-on vinyl works beautifully on cotton fabrics.

Step 8

When you’re robe is all done, grab a piece of wide ribbon to use as a belt and let the lounging begin!
