Esme Kaftan

After an outing to Fabric Depot yesterday, I decided to spend part of today's holiday sewing. I picked up this awesome Kokka cotton/linen fabric, Pebbles, that is part of the Rough Cut line by Ellen Baker. I love the pops of neon with the black. I turned again to Lotta Jansdotter's book, Everyday Style and decided to go for the Esme Kaftan pattern, especially since I had already made a tunic version and knew it was solid. It turns out I didn't have enough yardage to do a floor length kaftan, but that's okay since it would probably be overwhelming for someone of my shorter height. I did make it as long as I possibly could and added about five more inches than the tunic length. In order to keep that length, the only modification I made to the pattern was to do a rolled hem. I love it!

Obviously I adore this! The fabric is wonderful with the tunic pattern.
