The instructions for cutting the bias tape (at the bottom of page 1) are incorrect. Instead of:

From the bias tape, cut…

  • One 92-inch length. This is the Handle Piece.
  • One 64-inch length. This is the Strap.


It should read:

From the bias tape, cut…

  • Two 33-inch lengths

Some of our readers (but not all!) have found that the Sleeve and Shoulder seams of the Women’s Robe can feel a little tight. If you’re worried about this happening for you, or if you’re already experiencing this problem, please follow our thorough instructions for widening this section of the Robe. They are in the Update: Adding Room to the Sleeve and Shoulder Seam section of the original story.
