Does anyone remember sewing?

One article of clothing that you don't think much about the fit of is a bathrobe, but I had to concede today that mine is now way too big to wear anymore. I was gonna go out and hunt for a new one, when my eye fell upon a solution.

It's a bathrobe! From several years ago! It has only one drawback: it is still a bathrobe-to-be.

I had shoved it into an upper closet shelf, pattern tissue still pinned on to the cut pieces, during Project Empty, and there it has sat, mocking me in its cloud-violet fleeciness, for a couple of years. Not exactly haute couture, a fleece dressing gown, but it will offer an advantage a store-bought one can't: that of actually extending to my ankles, which are farther below my shoulders than are the average bathrobe buyer's, apparently.

So I dragged my old sewing machine out and dug through my threads, and I'm gonna sew me a bathrobe--if I can remember how.
