Make it with Mademoiselle was published in the 1970s. Mademoiselle magazine for "smart, young women" ceased publication in 2001.
The trick to using a pattern from the '70s (declared the ugliest decade ever by my dad) is to look past the questionable patterns and colors and look for classic shapes. A bathrobe usually always is a bathrobe. Only the decorations change.

Wal–Mart sheets come packaged in a fabric pouch, so we sewed the pouch down to the body of the robe for an instant snap pocket for her keys.
My daughter loves her new robe. If we had had time, I'd have set her loose on the sheeting fabric with some fabric markers before we sewed it together. She's been perfecting her renderings of rhinos and octopi. In the meantime, we're just going to enjoy the measure of silence around the house.
