Hmm, supposedly a simple caftan, but not really, the armholes and the scalloped hemline made this a bit more challenging, plus the neck hole was too small for my head so I had to cut a slash at the back and add a button and loop. Love the fabric (machine embroidered cotton voile) and wearing it feels like nothing, perfect for a hot day. I’m considering adding some gathers or a tie to make it a bit less square, any suggestions will be much appreciated :)
