Description

As a sometimes member of The Sew Weekly Sew-along, this was my contribution to the Musicals theme. I’ve never seen a live musical, but the 1979 film version of the musical Hair has always been a guilty pleasure of mine.

I had a ‘70s caftan pattern and a length of cotton batik that worked perfectly together. The only thing I would change about this pattern is to set in the sleeves rather than sewing the sides and sleeves “in the flat”. That way, the sleeve and bottom hems would be a bit neater and the serger thread wouldn’t have to be tacked back into the seam allowance.

    Thanks everybody. I have a driving obsession with any blue batik fabric.

    In fact, I’m making something now from an Indonesian batik sarong. At least this one is blue and white AND brown. I’ve got to start branching out……;)
