Just for my plus-size princesses, here is a robe fit for a Grecian goddess in a wonderful color blend of warm avocado and cool mint green. This is the only robe I have with a true scalloped hem - the original spread had this gorgeous hemline naturally and I integrated it into the actual design, slightly reshaping it where needed to create a beautiful, flowing silhouette. I also shortened the sleeve length and added vintage seafoam green ruffle lace for an extra touch of femininity. Upon a close look, the avocado flowers almost seem to have a slight shimmer...I also wanted to create an antiquated look to this robe given the gorgeous regal colors, so I incorporated little "imperfections" into the design to achieve this - so just be aware that you will note variations in color, etc. - this is intentional.
My auntie wears her robe that I made her like this with a knit cowl
scarf, so I displayed one in the photos as an example - it is NOT
included in the sale. Depending on your unique build and
desired fit, you can wear this wrapped like a traditional robe, or meet
front panels at your bust line for a peignoir-like fit. This robe is
made from a modern pattern that is a spinoff of the classic vintage
styling, with a flowing fit, slightly longer front panels, and an
overall feminine silhouette versus a traditional style bathrobe.
As is common with this particular type of spread, there are some "nicks" to the avocado sections, but again, I was going for an antiquated look with this design... Overall this is a lightweight fabric so it should accommodate many different climates.
According to my pattern, this *may* fit up to a modern size 4X. That said - everybody is different and each person has their own concept of how they want a garment to fit, so do check the msmts and feel free to ask any questions! Robe wasn't pinned to the dress form in any of the photos...

chenille has various
imperfections that may include missing tufts, a small snag or tiny hole,
a spot or two, small repairs, color variations, etc. I do not buy or
sell anything that I would not display in my own home or wear. All
the chenille currently listed is original vintage (unless noted
otherwise) from my own personal collection that I am downsizing.
