Description

Although it smells like autumn outside I wanted to finish this summer Kaftan in August, latest. Fortunately, Kiseki.de is a fast deliverer of Nani Iro fabrics. The pattern is an autralian one (“Make it perfect”) sold by a duth company.

The description is really good and I am really happy how the kaftan turned out. Like all double gauze fabrics designed by Nani Iro it is very very comfortable and soft.

I used size S and my new overlock, which now is quicker than my old sewing machine since I am a little bit more familiar with the 5 threads.

    this looks great, kaftans are on the top of my spring /summer sewing list. There’s something refreshing about seeing womens clothing that doesn’t cling. You look the picture of summer.

    It’s beautiful! Even if autumn is coming this piece would bring back hot days when you wear it! Lovely!

    Thank you so much. I must admit that this fabric has been chosen as an example for this kaftan by the pattern company ,-), since I know all Nani Iro fabrics I knew which fabric I had to order ;-)

    This top is truely beautiful! I can think that many people would love it but at the same time I haven’t seen anything like it because of the fabric. Your choices of fabric and pattern are spot on, great job. I would want to wear it everyday!
