Charlie Caftan Pattern - Closet Core Patterns

Advanced Beginner

Nothing says summer elegance quite as well as a dramatic caftan. Charlie 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.

SUGGESTED FABRIC

Light to medium weight wovens such as linen, chambray, tencel, silk, chiffon, rayon challis, crepe de chine, batiste and voile.
