There's a popular saying "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." It's popularly (though falsely) attributed to Mark Twain, but the quote still accurately describes the climate here. Winter is coming. And so is the new season of Game of Thrones! I'm a big fan of the Game of Thrones series on HBO as well as the books the show is based on, so I decided to make a nice comfy robe to curl up with while I watch. In the game of robes you win or...well, everybody wins, I guess?

This robe could also be a quick costume for the Red Woman or Cersei Lannister or other characters depending on the color you use!

Step 1: Design and Fabric Selection

For your robe, I would recommend something machine washable and cozy. It also has the added benefit that it has a little bit of stretch, which makes it a very forgiving fabric to work with. Terry cloth (the material that towels are made out of) would also work well. I (clearly) wasn't going for an exact replica costume, but it's fun to make it fit your favorite family using different colors or designs (yellow for Baratheon, red for Lannister, grey for Stark, red and blue for Tully, etc).

I knew I wanted a long robe with a full skirt, dangly sleeves and a huge, dramatic hood, so I knew I would need a lot of fabric. I used polar fleece because it's warm, soft, fuzzy and I happened to have 6 yards of it in red, my favorite color. I tend to hoard fabric, which always comes in handy when I have a sudden urge to make random projects like this. You just never know when you're going to need 6+ yards of red polar fleece!
