Sizing & Fit

FIND YOUR SIZE

The kaftan dress is a very easy fit and since it is a-line shaped use your chest measurement for sizing. If you have broad hips you could also check your seat measurement to ensure you get that "kaftan flow".

  • Any tips or advice to other makers? When fitting and sewing the facing on because of the pleat in the front of the garment it’s a sit tricky for beginners I think, but it’s worth the patience! Just take it slowly pans it looks really great when finished

Neckline help for me too, please!

I am now near the end of my second sewing of this pattern. For the first I gave up on the neckline and rigged an alternative. I was excited to hear that you posted a photo tutorial but I cannot figure it out even with it! Please help!

Hi Jen, you'll find an alternate neckline that has been tested, and approved, by some of the makers that found the first one confusing: https://sewingjournal.theassemblylineshop.com/2022/07/20/alternate-neckline-for-the-kaftan-dress/ Hope this helps! Best, Anki

flummoxed by the final steps

Even with the tutorial, I’m totally confused about how to finish this dress. I’ve spent hours today trying to figure it out and I’m going to give up. This is really frustrating because I’m a decently experienced sewist and I’ve had great success with many other TAL patterns.

  • Sewing Experience Experienced
  • Any tips or advice to other makers? Avoid this one till there’s better information about the neckline. The directions aren’t clear, and the tutorial might confused you further.

Video tutorial please

We cannot figure out the pleat at the front. A video would be great. I think this is probably a very easy pattern if you are experienced.
