Beautiful pattern, simple silhouette, but amazing for many uses. Fun to make, ready for warmer weather.
What a great pattern! I love the simplicity of the look. I had a little trouble with the center piece but I checked out the blog and found clear visuals that helped me. Great job with this pattern!
The perfect pattern for summer..... what more can I say ?!
Really happy with my first Charlie Caftan, I lowered the front panel as I have a large bust and small frame and worked a treat! Will be making more maybe in a linen or tencel.
'm a sewing newbie. I have had a few private lessons and lots of assistance with my past sewing projects. The Charlie Caftan was the first projected I started and completed on my very own. The pattern itself was mostly straightforward and easy to follow. Whenever I did seem to get lost with it or have question, I was able to refer to the blog posts on the website.
I have, and will continue to recommend this pattern to people looking for an easy place to start learning how to sew their own clothes.
