Another Clergy Robe - Butterick 6844

The Harris Family (members of my church) commissioned me to make a robe for Min. Hollis. They wanted to secretly give Min Hollis a robe. So I couldn't tell her who the gift was from when I took her measurements. On Sunday they presented their gift. She was well pleased at the thought and the robe.

I've used this pattern multiple times for robes for Min. Ross. Each time creating a different look. This version was basic View B with contrasting fabric for cuffs and collar. I also made a matching sash.

Here are a highlights:

I added shoulder pads. They made they the upper chest and shoulders better form.

The pocket folds toward the side back of the robe and is anchored to side pleat. The facing of the pocket is slightly exposed through the slit.


  1. You always do a nice job!! This robe is no exception. Beautiful!!

  2. What an awesome gift...the robe came out nicely.

  3. With B6844 pattern can you contrast the plets?

  4. Terran Dixon - The pleats are not formed using a separate piece. If you want to contrast the pleat, you will need to draft a separate pattern piece for that. I hope this helps.
