Goldilocks and the Three Robes

A good robe is hard to find.  I'm goldilocks when it comes to them.  I'm short, so they can't be too long.  And if they are too short I feel like I'm streaking campuses.  Sounds like fun, but I'm not in the mood.

They have to have an inner tie so the robe doesn't gape open, and an outer tie- just because it has to.  Yes, I'm picky but I feel better that I'm not looking frumpy.  No house coats here.  So that leads me to what is, in my eyes, the perfect robe.

My favorite robes are made of silk and look Asian.  Here are some good websites to find one of your own.  It's fun to dress up for gigs.  Here's some handmade creations that dazzle from Plum Pretty Sugar, Asian Expressions and 1920.  All of them are much cheaper than Victoria Secret and not as transparent.

I know how you feel! I'm a shortie too. I taught myself how to use a sewing machine just so I can tailor clothes down to my pint sized body. Hey, you know how to sew :) You can buy long robes and hem it down!

Yeah, I know. I actually have the patterns to make robes...but I haven't gotten off my lazy butt. Well, to be honest I'm working 7 days a week now. But still, I know how to sew. No excuses! :laugh:
