This Designer Inspired Caftan reminds me so much of Flower Power - 60's dresses - although the fabric would probably have been more floral, less flamboyant I guess. It's a very beautiful dress which I am definitely making for myself this coming weekend. The project is rated 'beginner' and I have the perfect fabric so I am good to go!

Love this easy, breezy caftan. Tutorial indicates it is actually a Herms inspired caftan dress. Just follow the drawn pattern and instructions. Super easy to sew as only straight line sewing is needed. A serger makes the process faster but is not necessary. Looks great in a soft jersey print fabric.

This pattern really caught my eye as, like the Blogger, I love light, airy dresses. And the pattern is really very simple as its just a matter of applying your own measurements and preferences to a large rectangle of fabric and stitching a couple of seams. If you are using a rayon, or any fabric that is likely to fray, then all hems will need to be turned over twice to prevent this from happening.
