KAFTAN DRESS PATTERN

3 reviews
Skill level: Very easy
An updated icon 

Our Scandinavian take on an iconic dress. Perfect for the beach styled with flip flops. Equally perfect for the five o’clock cocktails styled with your favourite heeled sandals. The Kaftan dress features raglan sleeves, an overlap v-neck which creates a pleat in the front, slit at sides, and in-seam pockets.

Model in the white dress is 170 cm tall and wearing a size S, and model in the stripy dress is 165 cm tall and wearing a shortened XL.

      Making the kaftan

      I enjoyed making this and was able to chose some bright large print design for the fabric. The pleat at the front took a bit of working out from the diagrams and I did look to see if you have short video on your website - which you don’t. The kaftan looks great to wear, I may have preferred slightly less cleavage.

      Like a summerbreeze to wear!

      I just recently found The Assembly Line as company and patternmakers. And I love them! This Kaftan dress var easy to make even though it was my first go at mitred corners. The instructions were on point and simple to follow. Now I made this near the end of summer and didn’t get to wear it as much as I wanted to, but I know it will be next summer!

      Again an awesome pattern, easy to make and easy to wear....it’s really comfortable. I love the raglan sleeves and the sliths at the side. I shortend it by 20 cm , just my personal taste cause i’m only 1.63 cm tall and never worn a long dress. Used a rayon for a flowy and drapy look. Next one gonna be a full lenght linen.......just LOVE TAL patterns, and i’m not done with em yet, not by a long shot!
