A retro caftan for Summer


Here's my latest project.

Stop laughing.  I think it's funky and fun.  Especially the fabric.  It's by Prints Charming, a small Australian owned fabric design company.  You can read more about them here.
The caftan pattern is also by an Aussie company called Make it Perfect.  Check them out here.

In progress.......

......and Voila!  Another fab creation laying on the floor because I have no models!
I'm certainly not going to put my bathers on underneath a caftan at this time of the year and attempt to photograph myself in the mirror.  Believe me, it looks better on the floor.

Bit firm fitting across the bust Sue, but that won't happen with my bathers on (pancake city!) The same pattern company has some cute pyjama pants by the way. :)

Yes I love op-shopping too. I've been haunting my local one a couple of times a week looking for a nice linen shirt. Finally got a ladies one so I'll have to re-think my apron design for that one! Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment. :)
