>Winter Robes and Slippers, 1910s

>Here’s a few lovely pages from the same catalog I posted from a few days ago- the Christmas Bella Hess catalog from the 1910s.  Aren’t these perfectly lovely and warm?  They remind me very much of the Pendleton wool I just made my coat from. I’d love to find one in a little lighter weight to make a robe with a big cord belt with tassels like the ones pictured.  The slippers look so dainty and warm, too!

If you’re feeling inspired by the images there are two ladies robe reprints from Past Patterns that would make up into similar robes.  This one is a kimono robe and this one is a bathrobe.  Although both are dated circa 1921 they could easily pass for late 1910s like the catalog images above.  If your gent is in need of a smoking jacket similar to the one above Past Patterns also has a reprint pattern available.  Hmm… if only I could get some last minute sewing done before Christmas…
