INSPIRATION: for this robe was seeing the green shiny fabric and knowing how well it would enhance the pastel floral cottons which all have some green in. Floral cotton patches are new off-cuts from other projects, linings and beige patches are from charity shop sourced clothes. All fabrics are laundered prior to cutting and making into garments.
