Pattern Review McCall’s 6231 Mens Sleepwear

IMPORANT NOTE: I do not own a male mannequin. The robe is intended for a male, but is photographed on the only available half mannequin, which is female.

McCalls 6231 is a collection of mens sleepwear pieces to mix and match. The robe is shown in two lengths, with a self or contrasting band on the front and sleeves. The pajama top has a patch pocket and is shown with both long and short sleeves, and also in two lengths. The pajama bottoms can be made short length or pant length.

I made the robe View B with a contrasting band. I used a chocolate brown polyester charmuse for the body and belt, and a golden brocade with an Asian design for the contrasting bands.

The only design detail I changed was to add pocket flaps in the contrasting golden brocade.

The only construction technique I changed was the belt carriers. I always end up pinning or sewing bathrobe belts to the side seams so they don’t get lost. I eliminated the carriers and sewed the belt directly to the side seams. To make sure it fit right with the belt sewn this way, I had the robes wearer put the robe on and tie the belt. I pinned the belt to the side seams, then later sewed them in place. Now, the belt will never slip away from the robe.
The pattern went together quickly without fuss. The instructions were clear, and the final result looks like the pattern illustration.

I recommend this pattern. The final robe is quite luxurious. The multiple pieces and views make this pattern a bargain, you can create an entire sleep wardrobe to suit your taste.

Very glamorous. I like it.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
