First of all, please don’t laugh at my picture. liZ and I decided a long time ago that we didn’t want pictures of ourselves on the blog—mostly because we are hermits and don’t really like even the thought of taking pictures of ourselves. Well, after a while here of heads cut off and other photo techniques, we are starting to venture out and put up a few pictures of ourselves. Awkward, at best, but it’s up there….(AHHHH!)
Anyway, on with the real part of the post. I have always loved the 3-seam caftan dress that I made a few years ago. It’s such and easy caftan tutorial and was a cinch to make and it makes the perfect pool cover up or the perfect dress for a hot summer night. And so I decided to make another one.
But, I felt like it was time for a teensy tiny updated version. And this is what I got. Shorter sleeves, shorter length and slimmed down in the middle (which naturally happens when you shorten the sleeve-length.)
The original 3-seam caftan tutorial is found HERE, and again the only modifications are the length of the sleeves and the length of the caftan. I did hem the neckline and the sleeves and the bottom, but other than that it is the same deal-io.
Have you sewn anything for yourself lately?
