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.

    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!
