Well, hello there 2017! The Greenstyle Creations team hopes you had a blessed Christmas and New Years. My decorations are down, my kids are back in school, and things are back to semi-normal (as close to normal as we get in my life!)
Amidst the craziness of December, Greenstyle Creations released The Sybil Robe. The name might be based partially off of the beloved Sybil from Downton Abbey. I am very late to the party and just recently started watching Season 1. I don't watch much TV, so it is taking me forever to get through episodes. While working on this blog post, I decided to look up "Sybil" and see if I could get some descriptive words for the robe. SPOILER ALERT, DO NOT do this if you are only to Episode 4, Season 1. Grrrr!
If you missed it, here is a quick overview, followed by our tester pics. I'm not surprised that our testers, once again, blew us away with their creativity, skills in the sewing room/studio, and also photography. A LOT goes into testing a pattern and we greatly appreciate the time and commitment that we are given from our testers. We did not realize how versatile the Sybil was, until tester pics starting coming in!
Ok, back to business..... The link below will take you directly to the product page of the Sybil Robe.
Sizes Included: XXS to 3XL
Skill Level: Confident Beginner
Pattern Features: PDF Instant Download, Layered Sizes, No Trim Pages, A4 and Large Format available upon request
The Sybil Robe is not just your regular robe. This robe has some sass! The Sybil pattern has so many opportunities for you to use your creativity and personal style to create something perfect for you. In the tester pictures below, you can see the variety the Sybil can give you. Cozy, to sheek, to sexy, whatever look you are going for. It has princess seams on the bodice allowing you to color block and giving a nice sleek and flattering look. The front has two options, View A as a straight front and View B for a crossover look. The skirt is lightly gathered with optional in seam pockets. You will love the opportunity to create multiple looks with this pattern. Some of our testers even used the pattern for a cardigan or a light coat, and with just a few mods, the crossover version could be a very cute wrap dress. To complete the look, click the link below and grab the Norah Nightgown. https://greenstylecreations.com/products/norah-nightgown-and-bonus-panties
