The cozy bathrobe Daphne accompanies you on cozy days at home and the next time you visit the sauna. It is knee-length and has a beautiful long shawl collar and patch pockets. With the tie at the waist, the bathrobe can be held together loosely. The inner tie strap fixes the left front part and ensures the right hold.

Length at center back = 94-100cm

Daphne was sewn from bamboo terry cloth in this pattern.

Required material:

We recommend a soft jersey or terry cloth.

Size 34-42 outer fabric 3.00 cm 140 cm
Size 44-50 outer fabric 3.70 cm 140 cm


Cut out the pattern pieces from your outer fabric. Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the middle so that you can lay the back part and ribbons in the fold. The pattern pieces should all be face up. Always align the grain arrow on all pieces in the same direction and parallel to the selvage of the fabric. Transfer all the notches from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk. Pinch the seam allowance in the fold of the fabric because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, and much more. Transfer these either with chalk or pins.

You need from fabric:

  • 2x front part in opposite directions
  • 1x back part in break
  • 2x sleeves in opposite directions
  • 2x collar slip in opposite
  • 4x belt
  • 2x bag opposite
  • 1x ribbon in break
  • 1x belt loops
  • 1x eyelet
  • 1x hanger

Sewing instructions:

To sew this bathrobe you need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, alternatively you can use the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to finish the raw edges.

When using jersey: Be sure to use a jersey needle and use a stretch stitch, i.e. if you are sewing with a home sewing machine you should either use a zigzag stitch or the tripartite elastic stitch and then sew all seam allowances again with a zigzag - Finish stitch or other appropriate stitch to keep them from fraying.

In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specially marked are 1 cm wide!
Happy sewing!

First you prepare the pockets for the front part. To do this, the lower and lateral edges are ironed 1cm. The upper edge of the bag is folded in 2x 2cm and stitched through.

You fix the bag at the markings on the right side of the fabric from the front part with pins and topstitch it almost at the edge. Make sure to start and end with a “V” at the joining edge when topstitching.

Then the belt loops, the eyelet and the hanger are prepared. You process this like a belt loop: To do this, neaten the strips on one of the longer sides. Fold the unfinished longer side 1cm, wrong sides together, then fold over the finished edge 1cm and iron everything flat. Topstitch the stripe on both sides, just under the edge.

Sew the two belt straps together, right sides together, in the center back. Iron the seam allowances apart.

Both ribbons are placed on top of each other, right sides together and stitched all around, leaving a small opening of 2-6cm. The corners are trimmed and then everything is folded through the opening. The opening is then closed again when the edge is topstitched.

This is what the finished ironed belt looks like.

Sew the collar facing together with a seam in the center back.

Sew the two front pieces together in the center back.

Sew an extra auxiliary seam between the two shoulder snaps on the collar facing. This prevents it from expanding too quickly when you start later.

Iron this stretch by 1cm.

The neckline of the back part is also provided with an auxiliary seam.

Iron the sleeves around 1cm at the hem and then again according to the snaps in the pattern.

Here we show you the processing of a right/left seam for the sleeve. The seams are beautifully finished. In the first step, the sleeves are placed on top of each other, left sides facing and sewn together at 0.5 cm. The seam allowance is now unusually visible on the outside, on the right side of the fabric.

In the second step, the sleeves are placed on top of each other, right sides facing, and sewn together with 1cm. The 0.5 cm sewn seam allowance now disappears in it. The seam allowance is ironed towards the back.

Finish the side seams of the front and back sections with a right/left seam. The seam allowance is ironed towards the back.

Fold the sleeve hem in twice at the previously ironed edge and stitch it through.

The front piece is sewn together with the back piece, right sides together: shoulder to shoulder, neckline RT with curve VT. Cut the corners at the shoulder snaps on the front piece. Orientate yourself on the marking in the section.

Neaten the seam allowances of the shoulder seam up to the corner and then iron them backwards. However, you iron the seam allowance of the neckline upwards.

The ribbon is processed cleanly. Iron a 1cm seam allowance all the way around and fold the ribbon in half, left sides together. Stitch everything close to the edge.

The finished ribbon is then stitched to the side seam on the right side of the body, which was previously sewn on the right/left side. To do this, determine half of the ribbon and stitch it flat.

Tuck the sleeves into the torso, right sides together. Pay attention to the snaps in the cut. The seam allowances are neatened together.

Let's now come to the eyelet on the understep. You attach these, right sides together, to the marking clip on the front edge.

This is what your eyelet looks like when it is finished.

Sew the collar facing all around the front part.

You attach the previously prepared hanger to the outer collar. The collar facing is turned inside out, left to left, so that the hem can be processed.

Iron the hem twice, first 1cm and then again at the snap with 4cm. Then stitch it through almost the edge.

Now you topstitch the facing close to the edge on the front part and stitch through the front edge.

You close the belt loops with a 0.5 cm seam allowance, left sides together, round. The snap in the side seam marks the location of the belt loop.

 Stitch the belt loop so that the seam allowance disappears underneath. After you have processed the side seams with a right/left seam.

This is how the bathrobe looks finished and how you can close it with the ribbon and the eyelet in the side seam.
