I suppose this could be recon, but I thought I'd post here instead.  I wanted to make bathrobes for the kiddies for Christmas.  We had these towels that were given to us, that just weren't our style, but they worked for this. Towels are great, because they already have bound edges, so if you cut carefully it makes your life easier.  I used the kimono pattern from this blog http://habitual.wordpress.com/ and modified it slightly.  Out of two slightly smaller bath towels (as they were decorative), two hand towels, less than two packages of bias tape (one will probably work if you pay attention to your cutting so you don't have to bind as many edges) and some slightly creative cutting, I got two bathrobes, sizes 2T and 5T.

The larger of the two.  You can see the handtowel used as the sleeves. I also used the extra from cutting out the pieces from the smaller one to make this one longer (so its running against grain, its robe, not an heirloom dress Smiley.

In action, sorry about the blurry face, I have a no kids policy  Smiley.

Thanks for looking.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Very cute!   Great job!

I've had this on my to-do list for a good year now...even have the towels all ready to go.  Towels are much heavier than the thin terry fabric at the store, so I think it works so much better for after bath.

Very cute!  I just made some towel wraps for a couple of nieces and two of my daughters, but they just have straps, not sleeves.  I like the sleeve idea! 
There's no reason to apologize for the "no kids" rule.  It's a crazy world we live in!!
