Make the robe. For small children you’ll need to buy enough yardage to reach from wrist-to-wrist, plus a couple inches for the belt. Have them small children you can have them lay across the Oly-Fun™ with their shoulder’s at the center fold as it came off the bolt.
For older children and adults, measure them from shoulder to where they want to robe to fall. IF this length is longer than 30 inches, then you’ll need to take that length and multiply by 2. Your new number is the number of inches of Oly-Fun™ you need to buy, plus 3-4 inches. To draw pattern for older children and adults, fold your Oly-Fun™ in half, so that there are two lengths as long as they are. Center their body over the center crease from the bolt and their shoulder at the new fold you made.
From here, the instructions are the same regardless of size, but the photos will show the smaller size for ease of photographing.
Draw approximately this shape. (I had to review my shape a bit later, so the tan lines indication where you should mark and cut yours. You don’t want those swoops.) Make sure you leave a generous amount under their arms and next to their sides. Besides the seam allowance, you also need some depth to account for wrapping around his/her body.
Mark on one side, then fold in half, and cut both sides out together.
Cut an opening up the front of the robe.
Cut a small neck hole for comfort in wearing. (Mine’s not perfect. I trimmed it up a bit after…but it doesn’t need to be perfect. It’s not going to matter.
