Meet the Lygon Robe

Designed for curves, comfort, and style, the Lygon Robe features:

  • Glorious French darts for gentle bust shaping
  • Large patch pockets with channel stitched top, perfect for holding your phone or accessories
  • Wide channel-stitched belt with belt loops
  • A channel-stitched   and that can be worn up or folded over
  • Dropped shoulders and long, roomy sleeves with channel-stitched cuffs

View A is an above-the-knee robe with contrast details, while View B hits at mid-calf and features side slits.

The Lygon Robe is rated advanced beginner.

The Lygon is designed for non-stretch, light or mid-weight woven fabrics, such as silk, satin, rayon, cotton lawn, or linen, fleece, flannel, or French terry. View A uses a contrast fabric for the neckband, cuffs, belt, upper pockets. Make sure that both the main fabric and contrast fabrics have a similar weight.

Jenny is wearing a Lygon Robe in a Nerida Hansen strawberry print on cotton. For her Lygon, Carrie used silk chiffon with silk crepe de chine contrast details.

Take your Lygon to the next level!

There’s so much you can do with a robe pattern! Here are some of our favorite ideas:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Crop the Lygon at the hip and add a lining for a casual jacket, piece your robe together for an epic scrapbuster project, or wear it to the beach as a cover-up. Sew matching pants or shorts for fun summer suit, or make it a daytime duster that you can layer over a t-shirt and jeans.

The Lygon Robe also makes a great gift! Sew one up for a friend, family member, expecting mother (it works as a maternity robe by grading between sizes, as shown by Carrie!), or for a whole bridal party.
