Named Clothing, Lahja Unisex Dressing Gown (Robe) Pattern
The Lahja dressing gown is a casually straight-cut unisex garment. The Finnish word ‘lahja’ means ‘gift’ and, as the name suggests, these dressing gowns are a great gift either for your friend or yourself!
There are two versions; a shorter knee-length gown with cropped sleeves, and a longer version that extends to midleg and has full-length sleeves. Both variations feature large patch pockets and a belt fastening.
Choose a non-stretch fabric. Depending on the desired look, choose a coarse fabric, for example natural linen, terry cloth, or honeycomb fabric or, for a lighter version, pick a drapey rayon or satin. The sample garments are made from stonewashed linen.
