Vintage Style Satin Robe

I started dabbling in lingerie over the weekend.  Ooh la la!  I’ve made foundation garments for brides and basic robes and pajamas in the past, but I’ve never made a silky lacy number like this one.  Fancy.

I love the long, lacy sleeves – glamorous, no?  I look forward to being one major femme fatale on our honeymoon.

carine gibson venise silk robeI was inspired by this lovely Carine Gilson robe.  So pretty right?  Unfortunately I can’t afford the hefty $1,335 price tag.  So I made mine for $20.  Wha-what?  That’s right.  $20.  *High Five*

**Update: VOTING HAS CLOSED – Thanks for your votes!**

DOUBLE UPDATE: I really appreciate that so many of you love this robe so much and are willing to pay me for your very own. Unfortunately I don’t feel that it’s right to sell a knock-off version of someone else’s work. I hope you understand ’cause I love you all so much and I want you to be happpyyyy. xoxo

    I found your blog through 30-something bride. That robe is gorgeous! Is it from a pattern or did you design it yourself?

  2. Your robe is beautiful! I know you’re getting prepared for your wedding, but are you going to be making these for sale when you return from your honeymoon? If so, sign me up. I will definitely buy one.

    Congrats to you and your intended!

    Hi ladies! Thanks for your sweet words!

    Elaine, I sort of used McCall’s 5248, but made some major changes.

    Kalyn, I’ve got some big plans brewing for the coming year, and I have been toying with a bridal lingerie collection. I’ll add you to my mailing list and you’ll be one of the first to know!

      Nothing like commenting 3 years after the original post…

      Have you goven more thought to bridal lingerie? I’m on the hunt for a gorgeous silk/satin robe trimmed in silk, but I’m either finding them in the cheap tacky range or $1,000+ price range.
      Would you consider making one?
