All-in-One Pants Robe
All-in-One Pants Robe
This unique robe has built in pants! And pockets! It is perfect for postpartum life. You can easily breastfeed or pump. Unlike regular robes, you don't need to worry about your crotch showing.
The Pant Robe is made by separately constructing wrap pants and a robe. Then you sew the bottom of the robe to the back waistband of the pant. It’s basically magic.
It is easier than you’d think to get this robe on and off! To go to the bathroom, you can reach inside of the robe and untie the pant. This allows you to use the restroom without removing the upper robe. Or you can remove the robe from the shoulders and leave the pant tied.
Pattern options: Choose from short (the gray one in the pictures), regular, or tall lengths. There are four sleeve lengths. Plus an optional hood.
Difficulty: 4/5. The construction of this garment may be confusing for beginners. Some advanced alterations may be required to get the perfect fit, such as adjusting bodice length. We did include instructions for common alterations.
Fabric: This pattern was designed for knits, but wovens can be used too! Use terry cloth for an after shower robe. Make a swim coverup with sheer material or athletic mesh. Add trim to the edges for a touch of whimsy (you can hem everything but the sleeves in one go!) Use fleece to stay warm in the winter. You can use directional prints!
Yardage: This robe requires between 4 and 7 yards of fabric! There is a chart in the pictures.
Special supplies needed: Decorative elastic or trim for the waistband (not seen from the outside of the garment). Most of the testers used FOE (Fold Over Elastic).
Maternity friendly: Yes, make according to your current measurements.
Nursing friendly: Yes, no modifications needed.
Size range: Seven generous sizes will fit from XS to 7X.
Fit: There is positive ease in this garment. It fits loosely like a traditional robe. You may need to add a modesty clasp to the bust to keep the front closed, if using as a main garment.
Time to complete: Start to finish is about two hours. Cutting can take as long as sewing.
About our Patterns
We aim for inclusive patterns that fit all bodies. If you don't see your size on this pattern, send us a message and we'll add it in!
Our size charts offer both metric and imperial measurements.
All of our patterns have a standard, 3/8" or 1 cm seam allowance.
Our tiles have two layers, labeled A4 and Letter. US printers use the Letter layer, and everyone else can use A4!
We designed our tiles to save paper and be easy to assemble. Place the guidelines on top of each other and tape or glue. The letter layer has solid guidelines with a star in each corner. The A4 layer has dashed guidelines with a circle in each corner. Each page has a number, and the tutorial has an assembly chart.
All of our files offer layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.
A0 pages are 33.25" by 60" and are printable at most copyshops. We design ours to be printable in black and white. There are no passwords on any of our files. Our A0 files have layers, allowing you to print only the size(s) you need.
Projector Optimized Files
Every pattern comes with a projector optimized pdf file. See what our projector file includes here.
All of our patterns are drafted digitally and tested with a projector in our paper-free studio.
Video + Picture Tutorial
We use pictures in our tutorials, not line drawings. We add in videos of steps that testers have a hard time understanding.
Our tutorial has a table of contents, along with bookmarks. This allows you to quickly get to the page you need.
When a pattern is updated, you will get an email notification. We allow our testers access to our entire pattern catalog, which means we get continual feedback on our patterns.
Each download contains a zipped (compressed) file, for downloading all the files at once. Download the .zip file, right click on the file and select "extract all".
We also include each file individually, if you wish to download each file separately.
