Homewear should be comfortable and loose, but at the same time you want it to look no less attractive than the output. This is especially true of the most common option for the house: a bathrobe. If you can not find an attractive model in the store, you can sew it yourself - for example, a robe with a smell: elegant, but spacious, and even though it is not completely fitted, well emphasizing the figure. How to sew a robe with a smell?
Simple pattern of wrap with a smell without sleeves
A classic wrap with a smell can be performed without side seams - quite upper, between the shelves and the back. In addition, it often lacks even the sleeves and buttons that the belt replaces. However, you can simply make a secret fastener so that the product does not lose its lightness. For such a dressing gown it is recommended to take thin and not too smooth fabrics: cotton, cotton, batis.
- A pattern for a wrap with a smell can be built without even performing complicated calculations: he has a free silhouette, as a result of which special errors of 2-3 cm are not important. In addition, there are no tuck in it, which also simplifies the sewing process.
- The basis of this robe is a rectangle. The full width (segment MN, multiplied by 2) is equal to the circumference of the hips with the addition of 5-8 cm. The NP segment, which marks the smell, is 15 cm wide, and is relevant for the left and right shelves.
- The length of the product is chosen arbitrarily, so this value is not indicated on the pattern. The height of the side (from the waist to the bottom of the sleeve opening) is 17-20 cm, depending on how free the sleeve should be. The same applies to the depth of the neck.
There is no particular problem in combining the details: first, treat the opening of the sleeve with a zigzag or with the help of an overlock, then sew over the top of the shelf and back, and then also treat the neck and edges of the product. If it is necessary to make a secret fastener, it is recommended to put it at the intersection of the waistline and vertical from point N.
- Ready-made dressing gown can be supplemented with an oblique beyku, started on the edge of the shelves and neck. Bottom it is not recommended to handle. For plain gowns, a cutout is cut out of the same material; for a fabric with a pattern, satin or satin ribbons are taken so that it does not argue with the main pattern.
- If you want to make sleeves for such a dressing gown, refer to their classic pattern, but do not get narrowed to the wrist: the basic idea of wrap-around robes is lightness and freedom, which can be traced in every detail.
Dressing gown kimono: pattern and tailoring recommendations
Such a variant of home clothes also applies to products with a smell, however it has some peculiarities: in particular, a robe-kimono is sewn not fitted - it is always loose clothing, if you look at traditional oriental clothes, and also assumes the presence of a wide sleeve-sode. In addition, this robe has a belt, which can be both standard width (2-3 cm) and closer to Japanese obi - 10-15 cm.
- The pattern of a kimono robe consists of 6 parts: one-piece back, left and right shelves, as well as sleeves and 2 belt details. Even an aspiring master will cope with the construction. The recommended material for such a product is silk, as required by traditional rules. But you can replace it with a different lightweight fabric.
All parts are built from the classic rectangles, so it is quite difficult to make a mistake. The length of the belt is chosen arbitrarily, depending on how it should be tied. The most commonly used formula is FROM + 40 (45) cm.
- The length of the classic kimono robe - to the middle of the leg: it is with this calculation, the silhouette will look elegant and attractive. The width of the back is calculated as the "width of the back," multiplied by 1.2-1.5. In this case, the front half and back are equal in width to each other.
- The bevel on the shelves coming from the neckline ends at the waistline, and the lower points of the side slits for the sleeves should be about 15 cm higher.
Details are stitched together as follows: first, the upper stitch shelves are attached to the back, and the fabric left on the allowances is ironed back. Then the sleeves are added, and the shelves are connected to the back already along the side seams. It only remains to sew the details of the belt so that it is tight and empty inside, and the kimono robe is ready to move into the wardrobe.
The traditional kimono on the back can often be seen a sign that says about belonging to a particular family. You can also decorate your robe according to this principle, but due to the fact that it is not typical for European countries to create symbolism at home, try choosing an attractive embroidery or just your initials.
