She's done it again...

I told you it wouldn't be long til I showed you all of this one...

Here it is - the Shearwater Kaftan, a brand new pattern just released by Toni at Make It Perfect.

I've never been one to sew much for me, but that is starting to change, with comfortable and easy to make up patterns such as this one.

This shirt is cool and comfortable and I plan to make another longer one to wear as a beach throwover.

It has little tabs inside the sleeves so they can be rolled up and worn short or left long.


I made it in voile from Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks range and it's a lovely soft fabric.

If you'd like to check out the pattern further have a look at Toni's great pics over here and you can also enter her giveaway to win yourself a copy at the same time.

PS - thanks for all thr birthday wishes, the party was last night and we all stayed up well past our regular bedtimes!

LOVE IT! I'd have to make seven. That's the sort of thing I could live in, day in day out. Call me the Kaftan Queen.

Looks fantastic Karen, and your fabric choice goes perfectly with jeans. Happy belated birthday, what a beautiful present your hubby bought you!

And thanks for giving such a detailed answer to my questions on Ning, I'll definately try and get to one of those markets.
