Eliza's Sweet Vintage Style Robe

Tuesday was my little Eliza's 6th birthday. While the kids were all at school, I spent the day making her a new bathrobe for her birthday. Friday, I am throwing together a last minute birthday party with a few of her friends. It will be an Ooh, la, la, Beauty Birthday (aka: Fancy Nancy spa party). I wanted her to have a cute new robe to wear to her celebration. So I made this.

I made it out of two Simply Shabby Chic bath towels from Target. I LOVE the texture. It reminds me of a an old chenille bedspread. And of course, Liza loved the pink! I didn't have a pattern, so I kind of made it up as I went along. I wanted it to have a bit of a 1940's flair to it. So I made big lapels and gathered the back up, for a more stylized look. Now I need to go finish things for the rest of her party!
