I’m Frani Boberg from Farmville, NC. This is a “hippy tapestry” turned robe for my son. I am inspired by color and choose to work with these wonderful cotton tapestries to construct apparel. The shawl collar, front trim, belt, cuffs and pocket trim are a deep marbled cotton fabric.
My son actually chose the tapestry as one of his daughters loves elephants and they are depicted in the pattern. The robe pattern is a medium Simplicity 7141.
I love the challenge of placing the pattern pieces to get the maximum use of the fabric. Often times there isn’t enough border for a collar and trim so I accent with a complimentary solid. Hope you enjoy another piece of my work.
