    Caftans originate from the 16th century Turkish word qaftan. I think the meaning of the word must translate "comfy!". This caftan inspired dress is a little shorter, with a little less volume, but will take you from the beach to the shopping mall with ease.

    O Caftan, My Caftan is a loose fitting, pull on dress with hidden side seam pockets and bias binding trim at neckline. Placket, arm and hem bands are sewn in contrast fabric.

    Fast and simple to sew - hope you enjoy this little piece of instant sewing gratification!
