Here's some of the creative versions by our wonderful team of pattern testers to inspire you!
Ruth's sensational colour blocking is the perfect combination of Yves Klein blue and Royal Purple.
Nicky relaxing in the garden in her floral version - even her mug is sprouting flowers!
Rena demonstrating understated elegance in her muted shades - pup seems very impressed - as are we! 
Jill is all smiles in her print mash-up - we love the contrast of the gingham and the roses - very picnic chic!
Louise looking summery in a cropped floral version
Hayley wows as ever in her cropped jacket version...
... and it's reversible too!
Ema and her teddy look ready to relax her classic cotton version
We love how she made use of her machine stiches to add some delicate detail on the cuffs...
More florals with beautiful top-stitching details by Jacquline
and it's just as beautiful on the inside too - check out those french seams - ooh la la!
Speaking of the details, look at this impressive top-stitching by Christina - and a great choice of label too -
Katie shows off an interesting print in her version
How about a a spa-perfect towelling robe as demonstrated here by Claude. She wisely didn't choose french seams for this one as the fabric would be far too bulky.
Room for two! Natalie here showing how to dress up your Lavender robe for a chic outing with bump.
And proving this is a very maternity friendly pattern - here's another bump! We love Michela's jolly patchwork print.
Carly looks like she's settling down for a nice relax in jumbo-gingham - reading her Lavender Robe instruction booklet perhaps?
Eva is super smart in her classic stripes - very cleverly using both grains of her fabric to full effect
And here's how she did it -
Charutree shows how the Lavender Robe pattern is a great canvas for showing off a dynamic print
Donna conquered some slippery crepe to make this elegant jacket-length version - we love the contrast of the shiny details against the matt body
And how about this for a pocket detail - created by some very deft fabric manipulation...
Jen has chosen another great print - this time bold, tropical florals
Jodie looks spa-ready in her crisp and classic cotton broderie-anglaise version
A cool green cotton lawn looks fabulous on Alyx
We love how Karen has made a feature of the pockets by piecing her own fabric together - also note the super smart piping down the front band!
Desiree is summery in sunny yellow seersucker - a great fabric choice
We can't wait to find out which shoes Leighanne picks to go with her dog-themed Lavender Robe! The contrast red band and belt really makes it pop!
A painterly tropical print for Lucy
... with matching leafy stitching and a clever choice of multi-colour thread
Joanne is giving us elegant Hollywood vibes in her linen-blend version - here teamed with a pair of 1930s beach pyjamas
More elegance from Rebecca in her print-mixing shortened silky number  
Stunning pattern placement by Helma using a wonderful bold African wax print  
And last but not least Tracey's inspiring quilted version - upcycled from a duvet-cover! Looks very cozy too!
