Summer is upon us and the holidays are just around the corner. This is the time to add a kaftan or two to this seasons wardrobe. Fabric selection can change the garment from pool side lounging to cocktail party celebrations! Border print fabrics work very well with this pattern style.

There are TWO sleeve and FOUR length options.
The hip measurement with the side shaping is 184cm (204cm without). A great way to learn finishing techniques for neck-lines and constructing and sewing bias binding.
