Another Jalie Melanie Robe

I knew I wanted a summer version of the Jalie Melanie Robe, to throw on in the afternoons when the wind picks up.  I was thinking linen would be a good fabric choice, and then when I saw this gorgeous linen print in Fabulous Fabrics, I knew it would be perfect.  I love both the colours and the print.  It is definitely a fabric that makes me happy.


I have dressed it up and worn it out with jeans, but mostly it is for throwing on over summer clothes at home.


I made all the same changes to my pattern as my previous version, but I made one further change for this version.  I am likely to wear this open, and the tie dangles down and annoys me when it is open, so I made a secret inside pocket for the tie to sit it when not in use.



I lined the pocket up with the print of the fabric, so it is pretty unobtrusive from the outside.


This is definitely one of my favourite makes for this year.

  1. Really pretty print. Makes a fabulouse Kimono jacket. Clever idea to add a inside pocket for the tie.
