The bathrobe can be held loosely together with the tie at the waist. The inner tie fastens the left front part and ensures the right hold.

→ To the pattern “Daphne”

In this pattern, Daphne was sewn from bamboo terry cloth.

Required material:

We recommend a soft jersey or terry cloth.

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


Cut the pattern pieces from your outer fabric. Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the middle so that you can place the back piece and ribbon in the fold. The pattern pieces should all lie face up. Always align the thread arrow in the same direction on all pieces and parallel to the selvedge of the fabric. Transfer all the clippings from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk. Clip the seam allowance in the fabric fold because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, and much more. Transfer these either with chalk or pins.

What you need from fabric:

  • 2x front part opposite
  • 1x back part in the break
  • 2x sleeves in opposite directions
  • 2x collar facings in opposite directions
  • 4x belts
  • 2x pockets in opposite directions
  • 1x ribbon in the break
  • 1x belt eyelets
  • 1x eyelet
  • 1x hanger

Sewing instructions:

To sew this bathrobe you will need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, or alternatively the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to neaten the cut edges.

When using jersey: Be sure to use a jersey needle and use a stretchy stitch, i.e. if you are sewing with a household sewing machine, you should either use a zigzag stitch or the three-part elastic stitch and then sew all the seam allowances again with a zigzag - Finish with a stitch or other appropriate stitch to prevent 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 needs to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specifically marked are 1cm wide!
Have fun sewing!

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

You attach the bag to the markings on the right side of the fabric from the front part with pins and stitch it on close to the edge. Make sure to start and end with a “V” at the binding edge when topstitching.

The belt loops, the eyelet and the hanger are then prepared. You process this like a sewing loop: To do this, you neaten the strips on one of the longer sides. Fold the unfinished longer side in 1cm, left sides together, then fold the finished edge 1cm over and iron everything flat. Stitch the strip close to the edge on both sides.

Sew the two belt straps together, right sides together, in the middle 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 cut off and then everything is thrown through the opening. The opening is then closed again when the edge is stitched.

This is what the finished ironed belt looks like.

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

You also sew the two front pieces together in the middle back.

Sew an extra auxiliary seam to the collar facing between the two shoulder clips, quilting foot wide. This prevents it from expanding too quickly when setting it up later.

Iron this section 1cm around.

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

Iron the sleeves 1cm at the hem and then again according to the snap pattern.

Here we show you how to process 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 together, and sewn together at 0.5cm. 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 together, and sewn together at 1cm. The 0.5cm sewn seam allowance now disappears into it. The seam allowance is ironed towards the back.

Also sew the side seams of the front and back pieces with a right/left seam. The seam allowance is ironed towards the back.

Fold the sleeve hem 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, neck hole RT with curve VT. Cut the corners of the shoulder clips on the front part. Orientate yourself on the marking in the cut.

Finish the shoulder seam allowances up to the corner and then iron them backwards. However, you iron the seam allowance of the neck hole upwards.

The ribbon is neatly processed. Iron 1cm seam allowance all around and fold the ribbon in half, left sides together. Stitch everything through with a narrow edge.

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

Place the sleeves, right sides together, into the body. Pay attention to the clips in the cut. The seam allowances are neatened together.

Now let's come to the eyelet on the underside. You attach this, right to right, to the marking clip on the front edge.

This is what your eyelet looks like when finished.

Sew the collar facing all around the front.

Attach the previously prepared hanger to the outer collar facing. The collar facing is folded inwards, left sides together, so that the hem can be processed.

Iron the hem twice, first 1cm and then again when snapping it with 4cm. Then stitch it through the edge.

Now you stitch the facing close to the edge of the front piece and stitch it through the front edge with a quilting foot width.

Close the belt loops with 0.5cm seam allowance, left sides together, round. The clip in the side seam marks the location of the belt eyelet.

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

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