Nothing says summer elegance quite as well as a dramatic caftan. Charlie by Closet Core Patterns is a fresh take on this warm weather staple.
All versions feature a deep V neckline, short dolman sleeves, inset center panel and roomy pockets. View A is modern and architectural with striking pleats beneath the bust. For a softer, more romantic dress, Views B & C feature a gently gathered bodice with an optional waist tie for a figure-skimming silhouette in two skirt lengths. You may also choose between a dramatically wide sleeve or one slightly higher cut for more coverage.
Fit: This pattern fits loose and large. If you want a true caftan look make it to your body measurements. If you prefer a finish with a closer fit check the finished garment measurements and size down.
Fabric: Light to medium weight wovens such as linen, chambray, tencel, silk, chiffon, rayon challis, crepe de chine, batiste and voile.
