In addition to my blue shibori dress, I’ve also added a mini kaftan to my summer wardrobe!
My birthday was in May and as a present to myself I went fabric shopping! I love linen and I wanted something easy and comfortable for the hot weather, so I thought–KAFTAN! With big pockets of course!
I used my own pattern, and I adjusted the neckline a little from the last time I made this one. I changed the v-neck to a u-shaped neck and I lowered it about 2″. I think I lowered it a little too much. I like the way it looks, but on such a loose fitting garment it doesn’t stay in place very well, so my bra straps peek out from time to time.
I also added big patch pockets. What is it about big pockets? I’ve noticed my pockets have been getting bigger and bigger with every dress. I wonder when I’ll reach maximum satisfactory pocket volume?
