I made this robe from a pattern from Made: http://www.dana-made-it.com/2011/06/beach-robe-pattern-is-here.html.
Incredibly well written and easy-ish to put together. The coolest thing though is you can make it out of a beach towel, so when I saw this patterned one at TJMaxx I snatched it up and went to work. The binding was tricky, but overall I think it turned out ok. And Kate likes it. 🙂 I plan on using it at the waterpark this summer. 🙂
