turkish terry cloth

RitaRae | Posted in General Discussion on

Hi, all…I need help!

I’m making a new robe based on an old, existing robe that a customer loves. The pattern is completed and ready. She bought wonderful, thick Turkish bathtowels at Costco to use as fabric, but they are too narrow (it would take 5-6 towels and she only brought 3). The main problem is that they are too short and in order to fit the length, I’ll have to use the ‘borders’ at the top or bottom of the pieces.

Does anyone have a suggestion/website/company that sells really heavy weight terry cloth? The only discussion I could find is from 2002! And, I’m having no luck online.

Thanks, RitaRae

    Costco sells products online, too. Can she buy more towels or order more to be sent to you?

      I'm thinking she'll have to buy more. She lives really close to me, so delivery is no problem. The original robe was made by her grandmother so it has great sentimental value, so I'm sure the cost of another towel sheet will be okay with her. It's really a nice pattern....slightly gathered sleeves (at the top) and they curve down to a self-faced opening at the wrist. The body is more fitted than the robes we buy today. Cute.

      Anyway, thanks for the reply. RitaRae

    Are you using regular bath towels rather than bath sheets or beach towels?

      Hi, Ralphetta,

      The customer got them at Costco and they are LARGE. so I'm assuming they're bath sheets. I was just thinking about it and maybe I could get away with only one more sheet IF I piece the bottom...add about a 4-6 inch piece at the bottom so that I can use the ends of the towels??? Of course, it would have to be curved as the robe is a little bit fuller at the bottom.
