Robe Patterns Roundup: 25+ Comfy Designs, All FREE

robe patternsYikes, it's late autumn already and Christmas is Nearly HERE!

When I was growing up, I always got robes as gifts at Christmas.  For some reason, a robe seems like the perfect gift, at least to my mother.  I didn't always understand it when I was young, but now as a mum, it is perfectly logical.  A new robe is such a nice thing to get and it seems like something people often just don't by for themselves.

So I decided to make some robes as gifts this year.  Since we don't yet have a robe pattern in our own collection of free sewing patterns, I had a look around to see what other designs I could find around the internet.  As usual, I'd like to share my work with you in case you're looking for similar inspiration.

In this roundup, I've not only included traditional comfy bathrobes but also some more exotic designs like kimono robes.

However, I did run into one problem with this robe patterns roundup.  There simply aren't any good men's free robes patterns out there as far as I can see which gives me a good idea for a future project.. If you come across any, please do let me know in the comments below so I can include them in the roundup.  To make up for this, I've included a link below to our popular Men's Pajama Shorts with Pockets pattern.

If you need something for the man in your life..

    Rats. I am looking for a Men’s robe pattern – a shawl collar terry cloth bathrobe.

    • Mayra Cecilia says:

      I will put it on my “dudes wardrobe collection” I have made two pieces so far now I am working on a pair of smashing linen pants. The robe will come out for fathers day.

  2. Laura says: has a free relaxed unisex robe pattern to draft. It’s kimono style and easy to adjust and sew. It is featured in linen but could be made in other fabrics.

  3. Sue Watz says:

    I’m coveting a robe made in bamboo or French terry or DBP – it’s comfortable, moves with me and most importantly doesn’t make me too hot. Maybe with a slightly flared waist to make me look more glamorous and less like a burrito with a belt.

  4. Yianna says:

    Yes, I’m old-fashioned too, hate these wrap robes. It’s the only style available in the shops in South Africa. We used to get really nice button-up and zip-up ones, but now, not even patterns available.

    • Mayra Cecilia says:

      HI Yianna, thank you for your comment, I will get working on an old fashion button down robe. Now the challenge for me will be to find the fabric, so some fabric hunting is appropriate.

  5. Eugene Ostermann says:

    We need kids with zippers, buttons, velcro too, hard for them to keep closed. Can you add how to modify width and fronts for that? Or a popover like beach type cover-ups?

  6. Jerilynne Graue says:

    Remember the chinelle robes that was gathered in the back and tied in front? Yea I want a pattern for that!

  7. Jo Hovey says:

    I saw some folks were looking for plus size patterns. Just FYI, googly free plus size robe patterns and you will be SHOCKED how many hits you get. I just opened the first 10 and it will keep me busy for quite a while.

    As for fabric. if you are lucky and live in a Amish or Mennonite community, there may be a factory outlet for fabric nearby that sells to them. One of them was in Shippensburg, PA. (I live in Southern MD so too far for me) but otherwise try Mood fabric, or google a factory outlet near you.

    Thanks for the list, I just wish some of these fit me! 😀 But it did give me the motivation to go looking!

  8. Barbara Keller says:

    I was interested in the Linen robe until I saw that the pattern is for sizes 6-8. There was a tutorial to increase the size, but not large enough for me, size 14-16.

  9. Kathy says:

    For a hooded, zip robe you could take Mayra’s hoodie pattern and lengthen it. Perhaps adding some to the side seams for more comfort. Measure a robe you like the fit of to compare wearing ease. I took apart an old robe I loved – but was falling apart – to make a pattern. Now I have a robe that fits the way I like, in the colors and style I wanted! Thanks, Mayra, for providing such great content!

  10. Charlie says:

    I have noticed that a man’s robe is the same pattern pieces as a ladies when using a purchased pattern. I make them for my husband adjusting length of sleeves and body.

  11. KattyWampus says:

    I will not use a wrap robe either. I prefer snaps down the front!

  12. Gayle Fox says:

    Where can I find a pattern for the pink Bathrobe pictured above?

  13. Debra says:

    Anyone know where to buy some high quality terrycloth fabric

  14. Linda Liberty says:

    I really dislike wrap robes. They open when I sit or bend over. Please, if anyone has free, zip front robe patterns, with some gathering above the bustline, in plus sizes, I would really appreciate your info for them.

  15. Ann says:

    I would also like to see one with a zippered front. In addition, I would also love to have a lined hood. That would be an awesome robe.

  16. Dottie says:

    Would like to have a robe with zipper front as it stays closed when sitting down and working in the kitchen.
